CTG Opens ‘Fun Home’ Tonight

url-1The Tony Award-winning musical “Fun Home” opens February 22 at the Ahmanson Theatre and continues through April 1, 2017. “Fun Home” has one preview performance on February 21.

Based on Alison Bechdel’s best-selling graphic memoir, “Fun Home” introduces Alison at three different ages in her life, as she explores and unravels the mysteries of her childhood. A refreshingly honest musical, Alison eventually sees her parents through the eyes of a grown-up. Winner of five 2015 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Book, Score and Director of a Musical, “‘Fun Home’ is extraordinary, a rare beauty that pumps fresh air into Broadway” (The New York Times).

“Fun Home” has music by Jeanine Tesori, book and lyrics by Lisa Kron and is based on the graphic novel by Alison Bechdel. Sam Gold is the director and Danny Mefford is the choreographer.
The cast features Robert Petkoff, Susan Moniz, Kate Shindle, Abby Corrigan, Alessandra Baldacchino, Carly Gold, Karen Eilbacher, Robert Hager, Lennon Nate Hammond and Pierson Salvador.

  1. Fabulous show. I choose to not know what a show is about when I go to the Ahmanson or Mark Taper Forum and I let the show surprise me. Boy, were my friend and I far off about what the Fun Home was! Brilliantly acted, this show unfolds and engrosses you.
    If you do read about it and you think the show is not of interest, you’re doing yourself a dis-service by not seeing it.
