Fun Home at the Public Theater

Monday, November 04, 2013

Director Sam Gold talks about the musical “Fun Home,” along with Jeanine Tesori, who wrote the music, and Lisa Kron, who wrote the book and lyrics. It’s based on Alison Bechdel’s graphic novel about her volatile, brilliant father whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life. “Fun Home” is playing at the Public Theater through December 1.

Smart, poignant, terrifically acted, masterfully sung, very effectively constructed and beautifully piece of theater - saw it Saturday night. Entire cast is superb. And very true to the autobiographical book. Continuing the Pub Theater tradition of reinventing the musical. Well worth seeing.
