Welcome to a musical about a family that is nothing like yours… and exactly like yours; about looking back, and moving forward; about making sense of our parents, and ourselves. The winner of five 2015 Tony Awards® including Best Musical, Fun Home is based on Alison Bechdel’s best-selling graphic memoir. This groundbreaking production introduces us to Alison at three different ages, revealing memories of her uniquely dysfunctional family that connect with her in surprising new ways. The story concerns Bechdel’s discovery of her own sexuality, her relationship with her gay father, and her attempts to unlock the mysteries surrounding his life. It is the first Broadway musical with a lesbian protagonist.
David Burrows directs this thrilling musical for its Windsor Premiere.
Music by Jeanine Tesoro / Lyrics & Book by Lisa Kron

“… speaks universally about big things that matter: life, love, family, surviving.” – Daily News.
“Exquisite. An emotional powerhouse that never lets you out of its embrace for a moment. No wonder the audience sprang as one from its seats at the ending, and the start of living.” – Chicago Tribune.
“Fun Home is an instant classic of the American musical theater, and a monumental piece of art… This is musical theater at its best… an emotional roller-coaster ride, a grippingly heartwarming story mixed with some of the most smart and joyful musical numbers presently on Broadway. Seekers of provocative, invigorating and entertaining theatre will find it. You’ll be surprised, and thrilled, and enthralled.” – The Huffington Post.
