what the critics are saying
 


“A rare beauty. Extraordinary and heart-gripping.”
– The New York Times


Seriously, singularly moving.
– Entertainment Weekly

New! Fresh! Original! We toss those kudos around a lot in this business. But Fun Home really earns the praise.
– Variety

One of the many wonders of the haunting musical Fun Home is the unique perspective it brings to that theme, in a deeply personal story that marries the specificity of individual experience with an emotional universality that will find echoes in many of our lives.
– The Hollywood Reporter


“All the earmarks of a contemporary hit: topical subject matter, a wittily irreverent but emotionally compelling book and score, and characters who are at once intriguingly idiosyncratic and instantly accessible... There's a key new player, Emily Skeggs, playing Alison as she begins college and discovers her sexuality, Skeggs is at once a winsome presence and convincingly, endearingly awkward. Her sense of wonder is infectious, and her struggles to figure out and win over her elusive dad are heartbreaking.”
– USA Today


Fun Home is a thing of rare beauty: a Broadway musical of enormous intelligence and sensitivity. Not your ordinary Broadway musical, because it is extraordinary. It sings outside the box.”
– Time Out

 


Fun Home
A New Broadway Musical

Following a sold-out, critically acclaimed run at The Public Theater, the groundbreaking new musical Fun Home comes to Broadway. It was named Best Musical by the New York Drama Critics Circle, and received the OBIE, Lucille Lortel, Outer Critics Circle and Off Broadway Alliance Awards in the 2013-2014 season. 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 family's Bechdel Funeral Home, her growing understanding of her own sexuality and the looming, unanswerable questions about her father's 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!" PS Classics is proud to preserve this musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.
