“Fun Home” was the event of the 2015 Broadway season, receiving raves from critics and audiences alike, winning five 2015 Tony Awards including BEST MUSICAL and making history along the way as the first show written exclusively by women to win theater’s highest achievement. It was named to all of the major top 10 lists including The New York Times, Associated Press, New Yorker, Entertainment Weekly, BuzzFeed, The Daily Beast, Chicago Tribune, The Hollywood Reporter and more.

“A RARE BEAUTY THAT PUMPS FRESH AIR INTO BROADWAY.” – Ben Brantley, The New York Times.

“An uplifting musical drama of rare intensity, honesty, and beauty. Fun Home speaks universally about BIG THINGS THAT MATTER: LIFE, LOVE, FAMILY, SURVIVING. It’s unconventional, to be sure, and musical theatre is better for it.” – New York Daily News.

“ONE OF THE BEST NEW MUSICALS OF OUR ERA. A rare sighting that could induce a theater critic to genuflect if not erupt in a chorus of hallelujahs.” – Los Angeles Times.

“EXQUISITE. AN EMOTIONAL POWERHOUSE.” – Chicago Tribune.

“ONE OF THOSE ‘DON’T MISS IT’ MUSICALS.” – The Huffington Post.

“TRUE GREATNESS…A TRIUMPH! THERE IS NO OTHER SHOW LIKE IT” – The Plain Dealer.

ROBERT PETKOFF (Broadway’s Ragtime, All The Way, Anything Goes) will play Bruce, SUSAN MONIZ (Broadway’s Grease, Chicago’s Marriott Theatre, Chicago Shakespeare Theater) will play Helen and KATE SHINDLE (Broadway’s Legally Blonde, Cabaret) will play Alison.

Based on Alison Bechdel’s best-selling graphic memoir, “Fun Home” introduces us to Alison at three different ages as she explores and unravels the many mysteries of her childhood that connect with her in surprising new ways. A finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, “Fun Home” is a refreshingly honest, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.

“Fun Home” features music by Jeanine Tesori, book and lyrics by Lisa Kron and direction by Sam Gold, whose work on this production earned them Tony Awards for Best Score, Best Book and Best Direction. With this win, Lisa Kron and Jeanine Tesori also made history by becoming the first female writing team to be awarded the Best Score Tony Award.

“Fun Home” was also nominated for 2015 Tony Awards for Best Scenic Design of Musical (David Zinn), Best Lighting Design of a Musical (Ben Stanton) and Best Orchestrations (John Clancy). The creative team also includes Danny Mefford (Choreography), Kai Harada (Sound Design), David Zinn (Costume Design) and Chris Fenwick (Music Direction).

Tony Award-winning director Sam Gold, who staged both the Off-Broadway and Broadway productions of “Fun Home,” restaged the national tour. The Broadway production of “Fun Home” opened on Broadway at Circle in the Square Theatre on April 19th, 2015, and ran through September 10, 2016.

The Grammy-nominated Original Broadway Cast Recording of “Fun Home” is now available on PS Classics, www.psclassics.com
