Based on Alison Bechdel’s graphic memoir, Fun Home has a book and lyrics by Lisa Kron and music by Jeanine Tesori. The unconventional show made history as the first Broadway musical written by women to win the Best Musical Tony, as well as the first Tony-winning musical to have a lesbian as its main character. Tesori and Kron also won the Tony Award for Best Original Score. The musical won five Tony Awards in all, including Best Book (Kron) and Best Direction (Sam Gold).
The Actors Fund of America is a charitable organization that supports performers and behind-the-scene workers in performing arts and entertainment. Viewers of the Fun Home benefit will be able to donate directly to The Actors Fund.
