Fun Home Hosted by Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma

Fun Home Hosted by Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma

A true story that became the Tony Award-Winning musical!

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 Fun Home was the event of the Broadway season, receiving raves from critics and audiences alike, winning five 2015 Tony Awards® 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 refreshingly honest musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes. This musical contains adult content.

ASL interpreted performances will be 2pm
Sunday April 15, 2pm Saturday April 21, and 7:30pm Thursday April 26. The interpreter will be standing on house right.

Music by Jeanine Tesori
Book & Lyrics by Lisa Kron
Directed by Michael Baron
