Fun Home Finds Its Broadway Home at Circle in the Square
The cast chats about the poignant new musical under its new Broadway roof.
Alison Bechdel's graphic novel finds new life in the round at the Circle in the Square Theatre where the Jeanine Tesori/Lisa Kron musical, originally produced at the Public Theater, is making its Broadway debut. Sydney Lucas, Emily Skeggs, and Beth Malone share the role of Alison, following her story from childhood to adulthood as she comes to terms with her own homosexuality while managing her relationship with her closeted father (played by Tony winner Michael Cerveris). TheaterMania caught up with several members of the company, who shared their thoughts on the original musical — a labor of love that they believe Broadway is ready to accept with open arms.
