The Fine Arts Center Theatre Company is excited to present the Southern Colorado premiere of the refreshingly honest musical, Fun Home with book and lyrics by Lisa Kron and music by Jeanine Tesori, based Fun Homeon the graphic novel by Alison Bechdel – on stage March 29-April 22, 2018; directed and choreographed by Nathan Halvorson.
Fun Home is an original musical punctuated with an innovative score that frames the curiosity of childhood and the complexities of family. Alison’s father was many things: a historical preservationist, a funeral home director, a distant parent, and a closeted gay man. In the struggle to understand her father, while also dealing with her own budding sexuality, Alison reveals memories of her life at three different ages.
Fun Home is the winner of multiple 2015 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Score (the first female writing team to win), Best Book of a Musical, and winner of a New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award, Obie Award, Lucille Lortel Award, Outer Critics Circle Award, and Off-Broadway Alliance Award.
