WHAT’S HAPPENING BROADWAY FANS?! It is offically 19 days away till the 71st Annual Tony Awards. We have more right now on our TOP 30 TONY AWARDS COUNTDOWN. Are you ready for more showstopping performances?
At # 19, we take you to visit a local dysfunctional family that runs a funeral home. The daughter with a secret shares her love for art and drawing she grows up to become one of the most acclaimed graphic novel artists of them all. This is Fun Home The Musical. It features a score and book written by Jeanine Tesori and Lisa Kron. It is based on Allison Bechdel’s autobiographical graphic novel of the same name.
From the 2015 telecast, Tony winner Michael Ceveris as “Bruce Bechdel” and Tony nominees Beth Malone as “Adult Allison Bechdel” and Sydney Lucas as the “Small Allison Bechdel” perform the showstopper RING OF KEYS. The performance went viral on YouTube and got a lot of attention especially people praising Lucas’ performance.
FUN HOME (based on Allison Bechdel’s life and graphic novel of the same name) was developed at the Sundance Institute Theatre lab in White Oak, NY in 2012 before Premiering OFF Broadway at The Public Theater in 2013 earning rave reviews. It moved to Broadway’s Circle in the Square Theatre a few months later running for a total of 608 performances. Today, it’s currently traveling across America on a US National Tour as well as productions worldwide. The show was nominated for 12 Tony Awards at the same time winning 5 including Best Musical. In addition the show’s composer/lyricist Jeanine Tesori and Lisa Kron made history as the first ever female duo writing team to win for Best Original Score.
Isn’t this show a powerful, emotional, haunting, and dark?!
