Fun Home to Release Expanded Broadway Cast Album
The original off-Broadway album will get a Broadway makeover.
The album will be an expanded version of the original album recorded by the Public Theater's world-premiere cast, and will now feature Emily Skeggs, who took over the role of Medium Alison during the show's original off-Broadway run and is re-creating the role on Broadway.
Inspired by Alison Bechdel's graphic novel-memoir of the same title, Fun Home follows the real-life Bechdel's journey to accept the death of her stern, closeted father, Bruce, while coming to terms with her own sexuality. The production features music by four-time Tony nominee Jeanine Tesori and a book and lyrics by Lisa Kron.
In addition to Skeggs, the cast of Fun Home includes Tony Award winner Michael Cerveris, three-time Tony Award nominee Judy Kuhn, Beth Malone, Sydney Lucas, Roberta Colindrez, Zell Steele Morrow, Joel Perez, Oscar Williams, Lauren Patten, Gabriella Pizzolo, Marrick Smith, Jim Stanek, and Nicole Van Giesen.
The production began performances at Broadway's Circle in the Square Theatre on March 27. It will celebrate its official opening on April 19.
