FUN HOME 

Music by Jeanine Tesori; Book and Lyrics by Lisa Kron
Based on the novel by Alison Bechdel
Directed by Dean Bryant

 

Australian premiere

 

A groundbreaking new musical

 

After smash-hit seasons on Broadway and in London, Fun Home comes to Sydney in a soaring brand-new production.

 

Winner of three Tony Awards including Best Musical and Best Original Score, and a finalist for the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Fun Home has been hailed as a “beautiful, heartbreaker of a musical” (New York Times) and “one of the best new musicals of our era” (LA Times). Based on Alison Bechdel’s graphic novel, it’s a heartfelt story about coming out and coming of age.

 

After the unexpected death of her father, Alison is forced to confront his secrets that come to light. Shifting between past and present, we meet present-day Alison, a successful graphic novelist; college-age Alison on the cusp of self-discovery; and precocious-child Alison, who plays in coffins instead of sandboxes in the family’s Bechdel Funeral Home.

 

Four-time Gold Logie Award winner Lisa McCune and Maggie McKenna (Muriel’s Wedding the Musical) join an exceptional ensemble including Ryan Gonzalez (Jersey Boys), Lucy Maunder (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical), and Adam Murphy (Aladdin). Directed by Melbourne Theatre Company’s Associate Director, Dean Bryant, Fun Home has laughs, drama and great tunes in spades.

 

Don’t miss this chance to see one of the hottest musicals to come out of the US in a decade.
