'Fun Home' performances

Posted

Based on former Pennsylvania resident Alison Bechdel’s graphic novel Fun Home, Open Stage of Harrisburg presents the Broadway play October 6 to 29. Stuart Landon directs. David M. Glasgow is musical director.

The New York Times recently reported "every once in a while, a Broadway musical comes along that surprises, moves, and excites audiences in ways only a truly landmark musical can. The groundbreaking, exquisite, and unforgettable new musical was nominated for twelve Tony Awards, winning five, including Best Musical and making history along the way. Based on Alison Bechdel's best-selling graphic memoir, Fun Home introduces us to Alison at three different ages as she explores and unravels the many mysteries of her childhood. A refreshing honest musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes, "Fun Home is extraordinary, a rare beauty that pumps fresh air into Broadway."
