The Big Deal: Fun Home At The AT&T Performing Arts Center

by Gila Espinoza 30 Aug 2017 8:32 AM

In 2006, cartoonist Alison Bechdel published the graphic memoir “Fun Home,” a recounting of her relationship with her late father. The book went on to become a New York Times bestseller and Time named it the #1 Book of the Year. In 2010, writer Lisa Kron and composer Jeanine Tesori began the task of adapting the material as a musical.  In 2015, “Fun Home” opened on Broadway at Circle in the Square where it became the most acclaimed new musical of the season by winning five Tony Awards including Best Musical and made history along the way.  Win this Big Deal and see the landmark musical on opening night on September 13 at the Winspear Opera House.
