FUN HOME

Music: Jeanine Tesori
Book & Lyrics: Lisa Kron

Three Rivers Music Theatre is thrilled to present the Fort Wayne Premiere of FUN HOME, one of the most celebrated musicals in
recent Broadway history. FUN HOME is the coming-out memoir of Alison Bechdel, an exploration of family, memory, first love, and a daughter’s relationship with her father. FUN HOME was nominated for 12 Tony Awards in 2015 winning five including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, Best Original Score, Best Leading Actor and Actress in a Musical. FUN HOME was also winner of the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Musical, Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway Musical and the Obie Award for Musical Theatre.

FUN HOME is based on Alison Bechdel's witty and wistful graphic novel of the same name. Past and present blend magically as we see Alison at three different ages: as a young girl playing games in the family’s funeral home, as a college student joyously discovering her sexuality as a lesbian woman and now as an adult on an extraordinary quest to discover the truth about her father's secret life. Don't miss this extraordinary regional premiere production!
