It started as an Off-Broadway production, then became “the first mainstream musical about a young lesbian”, and was awarded multiple Tonys and a 2016 Grammy. The musical production of Fun Home has always received effusive acclaim from audiences and critics.

Based on Bechdel’s breakout comic book memoirs, Fun Home focuses on Alison’s complex relationship with her father, Bruce – English teacher, director of the town funeral home, and icily distant family head. Heart-breaking and fiercely funny, Fun Home is a story about the coming out of secrets, and all of the drama, confusion, and unforeseen consequences that ensue.

Brought to the stage by East West Theatre, Cambio Coffee, and a stellar creative team that includes some of Shanghai’s most talented actors and singers – this ground-breaking musical and dark family tragicomedy is not to be missed.

Family, memories, cartoons, singing, and tears…come to the Fun Home!
