About: “Fun Home” the music is based on Alison Bechdel’s tragi-comedy memoir written in comic form. She tells the story of her complicated relationship with her father; the funeral home that her family ran; as well as her coming out and living as a Lesbian. The musical is adapted by an all-female writing team, which makes it pass the Bechdel test- ha!
