fun home


"Fun Home" is a groundbreaking five-time Tony Award winning musical based on Vermont author and illustrator Alison Bechdel’s acclaimed graphic memoir. The show features a book by Lisa Kron and music by Jeanine Tesori. As the show unfolds, you meet Bechdel at three different life stages as she grows and grapples with her uniquely dysfunctional family, her sexuality, and her father’s secrets.

"Fun Home" runs on Weston Playhouse's Second Stage at Walker Farm through July 28.

Director Malcolm Ewen and Caitlin Kinnunen (Medium Alison) join us.

This season the Weston Playhouse presents productions of "Anne of Green Gables," "Our Town," "Fun Home," "West Side Story," "A Doll's House, Part 2," "Million Dollar Quartet," and "Two Trains Running" on its two stages in Weston, Vermont. 

Steve Stettler is Weston's Producing Artistic Director.
