Fun Home History
In this year’s Tony Awards, Fun Home took home a bunch of fun awards including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, Best Original Score, Best Direction of a Musical, and Best Leading Actor in a Musical. Performed entirely in the round, this new musical is one-of-a-kind and quickly rose to critical acclaim while on and off Broadway.
Originally is based off the 2006 graphic memoir by Alison Bechdel. It premiered on off-broadway during the 2013-2014 season and moved to Broadway theater Circle in the Square Theatre in March of 2015. All of the off-broadway cast reprised their roles except for the actors playing 19-year-old Alison, and her brothers Christian and John Bechdel.
The story follows Alison, after her father dies unexpectedly, as she writes her graphic novel based off her childhood. We see Alison in three different stages in her life: at age 43 when writing her memoir, at age 19 when she is a student at Oberlin discovering her sexuality, and at 8-years-old when she is struggling to meet her father’s expectations of her as a girl.The show moves between present and past as she relives her childhood at the family’s funeral home.
The fun twist in this musical is that young Alison is just noticing she is gay, and what she didn’t know at the time, was that her father was gay too. The show progresses as the audience watches her grow to understand her own sexuality and figure out the unanswerable questions about her father.
