12-TIME TONY AWARD NOMINATED
ACCLAIMED NEW MUSICAL
“ F U N H O M E ”
NOW ON SALE THROUGH JANUARY 3, 2016
New York, NY (May 26, 2015) – Producers Fox Theatricals (Kristin Caskey, Mike Isaacson) and Barbara Whitman are pleased to announce that tickets for Fun Home, the Award-winning American musical based on Alison Bechdel’s graphic novel of the same name, are now on sale through January 3, 2016. With music by five-time Tony® Award nominee Jeanine Tesori, a book and lyrics by three-time Tony® Award nominee Lisa Kron and direction by Tony® Award nominee Sam Gold, Fun Home has been playing to standing-room-only audiences since it opened to rave reviews on Sunday, April 19, 2015 as was subsequently nominated for twelve 2015 Tony Awards. The show, which has doubled its weekly grosses in the seven weeks since it began previews, recently broke the house record for a single day of sales of a musical in the history of the 730-seat Circle in the Square Theatre (235 West 50th Street).
The cast of Fun Home includes current 2015 Tony® Award nominees Michael Cerveris, Judy Kuhn, Beth Malone, Sydney Lucas and Emily Skeggs, along with Roberta Colindrez, Zell Steele Morrow, Joel Perez, Oscar Williams, Lauren Patten, Gabriella Pizzolo, Marrick Smith, Jim Stanek, and Nicole Van Giesen.
Fun Home introduces us to Alison at three different ages, revealing memories of her uniquely dysfunctional family – her mother, brothers and volatile, brilliant, enigmatic father – that connect with her in surprising new ways. This intimate and emotional theatrical experience is performed entirely in the round, bringing audiences closer to Alison’s story than ever before. A finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, Fun Home is a refreshingly honest, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.
Fun Home is nominated for twelve 2015 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical (Michael Cerveris), Best Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical (Beth Malone), Best Actress in a Featured Role in a Musical (Judy Kuhn), Best Actress in a Featured Role in a Musical (Sydney Lucas), Best Actress in a Featured Role in a Musical (Emily Skeggs), Best Direction of a Musical (Sam Gold), Best Book of a Musical (Lisa Kron), Best Score (Jeanine Tesori and Lisa Kron), Best Scenic Design of a Musical (David Zinn), Best Lighting Design of a Musical (Ben Stanton), and Best Orchestrations (John Clancy).
The coast-to-coast North American Tour of Fun Home will begin in the 2016 – 2017 Season. For the fourth time, Tony Award nominated director Sam Gold will completely restage this production for proscenium theaters, as was done in its sold-out run at the Public Theater’s Newman and Shiva Theaters.
The updated Broadway version of the Fun Home Original Cast Recording is now available on PS Classics.
