A LANDMARK PRODUCTION THAT WILL FOREVER CHANGE WHAT IS POSSIBLE IN MUSICAL THEATRE."
EXQUISITE. AN EMOTIONAL POWERHOUSE.
SPEAKS UNIVERSALLY ABOUT BIG THINGS THAT MATTER: LIFE, LOVE, FAMILY, SURVIVING.
GROUNDBREAKING. LIFE-AFFIRMING. EXQUISITE.
Every once in a while a musical comes along that surprises, moves and excites audiences in ways only a truly landmark production can. based on Alison Bechdel's best-selling graphic memoir, FUN HOME introduces us to Alison at three different ages as she explores and unravels the many mysteries of her childhood. Alison guides us through revealing memories of her uniquely dysfunctional family – her mother, brothers and volatile, brilliant, enigmatic father – that connect with her in surprising new ways. A finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, Fun Home is a refreshingly honest, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.
I was so taken by FUN HOME because it is a project about a family that speaks to who we are at this point in time in our evolution as people.
STAGING A REBIRTH
FUN HOME will be the first full-scale production staged at the brand new Curran. Following a historic renovation project, visionary Carole Shorenstein Hays reopens the 1600-seat theater with a brand new look and creatively daring mission: to create a new kind of hub for art right here in the Bay Area, starting with the 2015 Tony Award winner for BEST MUSICAL, BEST ORIGINAL SCORE, and BEST DIRECTION.
THE NEW CURRAN
Built in 1922, the Curran has housed some of the biggest productions in theater history and has maintained a reputation over the course of its life as one of the premier live entertainment venues in North America. Now, almost a century after welcoming our first Bay Area audiences, we're attracting the most visionary artists in the world, by presenting bold, daring work.
We want the Curran to be a cultural hub where audiences and artists are part of the same Curran community.
