Curran Theater Releases Music Video Featuring Fun Home's "Ring of Keys"
The song is performed by students from Oakland School for the Arts.
San Francisco's Curran Theatre has released a music video of the song "Ring of Keys," from the musical Fun Home. The Tony-winning show will reopen the Curran this January after an extensive renovation that is currently underway.
The song, written by Tony Award winners Lisa Kron and Jeanine Tesori and performed by students from Oakland School for the Arts, is presented in celebration and support of GLAAD and "Spirit Day" on October 20, a day that encourages all to take a stand against bullying of LGBTQ youth and to wear purple.
Based on Alison Bechdel's best-selling graphic memoir, Fun Home features music by Tesori, book and lyrics by Kron, and direction by Sam Gold, whose work on this production earned them Tony Awards for Best Score, Best Book, and Best Direction.
Fun Home introduces us to Alison at three different ages, revealing memories of her uniquely dysfunctional family – her mother, brothers and volatile, brilliant, enigmatic father – that connect with her in surprising new ways.
