The show's originator, Alison Bechdel, will join the Tony-winning cast.
The Tony-winning Broadway musical Fun Home will become the first Broadway show to perform on Late Night With Seth Meyers, with Beth Malone, Emily Skeggs, and Roberta Colindrez singing "Changing My Major" on the program tonight.
