  Fun Home at Ahmanson Theatre

Fun Home

Ahmanson Theatre
135 North Grand Ave Los Angeles

Fun Home -- winner of five 2015 Tony Awards, including Best Musical -- has been praised as "the best of what Broadway can do" by the Associated Press and "something of a miracle" by New York Magazine. Based on Alison Bechdel's best-selling graphic memoir, Fun Home tells the story of Alison at three different ages, interacting with her uniquely dysfunctional family -- her mother, brothers and brilliant, volatile father. Intimate, emotional and refreshingly honest, Fun Home captures the experience of seeing your parents through grown-up eyes. Be sure to see the show Newsday calls "a blazingly original heartbreaker and a nonstop treasure of invention" when it comes to the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles.

Los Angeles Times - Highly Recommended

"...Spun from a graphic memoir of literary genius, "Fun Home" clears a path of originality for the American musical. This is the third time I've seen the show, and my admiration keeps growing."

Charles McNulty


LA Weekly - Recommended

"...Fun Homeís most poignant irony is driven home in its wistfully moving and hopeful finale ballad, "Flying Away," shared by Shindle, Corrigan and Baldacchino; that, not unlike the old-time carnival funhouse of trick mirrors, shifting floors and distorted perspectives, family can be both a prison as well as a liberation."

Edge - Highly Recommended

"...There are few, indeed, quality theater pieces or films which deal with lesbian issues. And a Broadway musical on the subject, which dominated the Tony Awards two seasons ago, is even rarer. So go see "Fun Home," which is on its National Tour."

Stage and Cinema - Recommended

"...Fun Home manages to move beyond a valedictory tale of children learning from parentsí lies. The depiction of a necessarily incomplete and fatally unfinished Bruce reverberates even more because of the three Alisons who forge an imagined whole greater than her life. The fun may be ironic but the feelings register and relate in all directions."

LA Splash - Recommended

"...Director Sam Gold helms the production with a sure hand, while musical director Micah Young keep the melodies flowing artlessly. David Zinnís scenic and costume design, Ben Stantonís lighting, and Kai Haradaís sound are skillful and pleasing to the audience. The audience should remain aware that this is at its foundation a story about the difficulties faced by homosexuals, their self-exploration and personal discoveries, and all the ramifications that knowledge entails."

Stage Scene LA - Highly Recommended

"... Coming of age. Coming out. Coming to grips. Three extraordinary actresses breathe life into a young lesbianís journey from childhood to mid-life in Alison Bechdelís graphic memoir-turned-Tony-winning musical Fun Home, now making a thrilling Los Angeles debut at the Ahmanson."

Stage Raw - Highly Recommended

"...Memory is rarely linear, clearly outlined, or objective. Instead, we tend to remember the past in soft focus, in impressionistic portraits of events relived through the lenses of emotional and psychological revisionism. As such, it's not only fitting but perfect that Jeanine Tesori (music) and Lisa Kron (book and lyrics) have created a Tony Award-winning musical that feels just as vulnerable and imprecise as memory itself. With its Sondheim-esque songs and its non-naturalistic staging by Tony-winner Sam Gold, Fun Home constantly reminds us of the jagged edges of memory."
