Fun Home is a really special and emotional musical. It's based on the graphic novel of the same name by Alison Bechdel. It's about a girl who is gay and she didn't know that her dad was gay and how they got along with each other. It is totally different from any musical I have seen, because the topic of Fun Home is LGBT culture. The fact is that this is the first show ever made about lesbians.
The cast is so amazing because they all have talent! I have to say that Sydney Lucas is fabulous! Beth Malone is really terrific. I met Beth. I asked her, "how did you prepare for the role?" She answered she watched a lot of Alison's videos, read the book (graphic novel) and other books. I have to say that she plays Alison so well and even looks like her!!!!
The music and lyrics are beautiful. It moves the plot along, and tell you something about the story. The songs always do that! My favorite songs are ring of keys, flying away and changing my major. The funniest song is Come to the Fun Home!
The set is creative because it is small. It's playing in Circle in the square.
I give it 10 escapes for my review. It won the best musical in 2015!!! It is a must See!! It is my favorite musical ever!
