what the critics are saying
 


“[Critics' Pick!] A beautiful heartbreaker of a musical - Fun Home finds a shining clarity that lights up the night!
– The New York Times


Achingly beautiful! Jeanine Tesori and Lisa Kron have made something special. Beth Malone, Alexandra Socha and Sydney Lucas are wonderful as the three Alisons, and Judy Kuhn is lump-in-your throat poignant!
– New York Daily News


A collaboration to cherish! Lisa Kron knows precisely how to mix the demands of a musical and the brilliance of Bechdel’s memoir. Jeanine Tesori finds just the right voices.
– Newsday


“Inventive and sensitive staging from Sam Gold. Michael Cerveris gives a performance of powerful delicacy and pathos.”
– Bloomberg News

 


Fun Home
Original Cast Recording

Hailed by The New York Times as a "beautiful heartbreaker of a musical," Fun Home "finds a shining clarity that lights up the night" in one of the best-reviewed productions of the year. In this fresh, daring new musical, based on the acclaimed graphic novel by Alison Bechdel, the cartoonist relives her unique childhood playing at the familyís Bechdel Funeral Home, her growing understanding of her own sexuality and the looming, unanswerable questions about her fatherís hidden desires and sudden death. With music by four-time Tony Award-nominee Jeanine Tesori and book and lyrics by Tony Award-nominated playwright Lisa Kron, Fun Home features a splendid cast, including Tony Award-winner Michael Cerveris and three-time Tony Award-nominee Judy Kuhn, "doing some of the best work of their careers" in a "miracle" production directed by Sam Gold (New York Magazine). New York Daily News, in a 5 star review, called it "achingly beautiful," Variety hailed it as "warm, funny and heartbreaking," while New York Observer simply proclaimed it "a triumph!" Now, PS Classics and The Public Theater join forces to preserve this groundbreaking world-premiere musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.
