FUN HOME
Music by Jeanine Tesori | Book and Lyrics by Lisa Kron
Based on the graphic novel by Alison Bechdel
November 1 -25, 2018
Featuring Tony Award Winner Karen Olivo | Wisconsin Premiere

Directed by Jennifer Uphoff Gray

Graphic novelist Alison Bechdel’s father was a volatile and brilliant man whose secrets defined her family and her life. Bruce taught high school English, ran the family’s funeral home business, and was obsessed with restoring their old house. When he dies unexpectedly, Alison digs deeply into her childhood memories to try and understand how his choices may have influenced her own.

This unique, funny and heart-shattering new musical zig-zags across Alison’s past and present as she tries to make sense of her parents’ lives, her own sexuality, and how she maps the terrain of her adult world.

“FIVE STARS. Fun Home has enormous intelligence and sensitivity. It’s not your ordinary Broadway musical, because it is extraordinary.”
– Time Out New York
