COME HOME ONE LAST TIME | FINAL PERFORMANCE SEPTEMBER 10
WELCOME

TO A MUSICAL ABOUT A FAMILY THAT'S NOTHING LIKE YOURS… AND EXACTLY LIKE YOURS.

The winner of five 2015 Tony Awards® including Best Musical, FUN HOME  is based on Alison Bechdel’s best-selling graphic memoir. This groundbreaking production introduces us to Alison at three different ages, revealing memories of her uniquely dysfunctional family that connect with her in surprising new ways. “Heart-gripping and cathartic, FUN HOME  occupies the place where we all grew up” (The New York Times).

WELCOME

TO A MUSICAL ABOUT LOOKING BACK… AND MOVING FORWARD. 

Performed entirely in the round, this intimate and emotional theatrical experience allows us to look through Alison’s eyes as she reflects on the moments that made her who she is. As we witness her journey to self-acceptance, FUN HOME  vividly “demonstrates how much our world has changed and reflects just how far we’ve come” (The Wall Street Journal).

WELCOME

TO A MUSICAL ABOUT MAKING SENSE OF OUR PARENTS… AND OURSELVES.

FUN HOME  is a gripping portrayal of a daughter’s determination to understand and connect with her volatile, brilliant, enigmatic father. A refreshingly honest musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes, it's “a blazingly original heartbreaker and a nonstop treasure of invention” (Newsday).

EXQUISITE.
An emotional powerhouse that never lets you out of its embrace for a moment. No wonder the audience sprang as one from its seats at the ending, and the start of living.

THE BEST NEW MUSICAL TO OPEN THIS SEASON.
A rare beauty that pumps oxygenating fresh air into Broadway. This impeccably shaded portrait of a girl and her father tries to solve the classic mystery: Who are these strange people who made me? I can’t think of a recent musical — or play, for that matter — that has done a better job at finding theatrical expression for the wayward dynamics of remembering. Heart-gripping and cathartic, FUN HOME occupies the place where we all grew up, and will never be able to leave. WE’RE HOME.
- The New York Times
An uplifting musical drama of rare intensity, honesty and beauty, told through melodically rich songs that summon yearning, heartache and joy. It speaks universally about
BIG THINGS THAT MATTER: LIFE, LOVE, FAMILY, SURVIVING.
It’s unconventional, to be sure, and musical theatre is better for it.
