The winner of five 2015 Tony Awards® including Best Musical, FUN HOME is based on Alison Bechdel’s best-selling graphic memoir of the same title. This groundbreaking autobiographical production introduces us to Alison (best known for the long-running comic strip "Dykes to Watch Out For") at three different ages, revealing memories of her uniquely dysfunctional family that connect with her in surprising new ways. The New York Times calls the story "heart-gripping and cathartic," and says that "FUN HOME occupies the place where we all grew up."
UUCV Music Director David M. Glasgow plays "Bruce," Alison's closeted father, and serves as music director for the Open Stage production.
While the cast of FUN HOME includes actors as young as 9 years old, and the piece is full of humor and upbeat music, parents may wish to consider whether younger audience members will be comfortable with the images of parental anger, suicide, and sexuality that appear in the course of the story.
