Only four performances remain to see FUN HOME. The Winner of Five Tony-Awards, ends at Music Mountain Theatre March 10, 2024

(LAMBERTVILLE, NJ) – Theater enthusiasts will find it’s the last weekend to see FUN HOME at Music Mountain Theatre (MMT).  FUN HOME, a musical based on the groundbreaking graphic memoir by Alison Bechdel, with the book with lyrics by Lisa Iron and music by Jeannie Tesori, is the latest mainstage production at MMT and comes to an end this weekend (March 8- 10th) with performances running Friday, March 8 Saturday, March 9, and Sunday, March 10, 2024. 

 

When her father dies unexpectedly, Alison dives deep into her past to tell the story of the volatile, brilliant, one-of-a-kind man whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life. Moving between the past and present, Alison relives her unique childhood at the family’s Bechdel Funeral Home, her growing understanding of her own sexuality, and the looming, unanswerable questions about her father’s hidden desires.

With a score that ranges from exuberant 70’s pop to aching melodies and dissonant harmonies of characters longing to be known, Fun Home is the Tony Award-winning story of a daughter and father, of coming out, and coming to terms with a life shaped by a family’s secrets. An unforgettable and groundbreaking musical, Fun Home explores the haunting pull of memory and its power to shape our identity.

The winner of five Tony Awards in 2015, including Best Musical, Book, and Score, Fun Home contains strong adult language, conversations/depictions of suicide, and mild adult themes.

MMT is also proud to be bringing back American Sign Language-interpreted and sensory-friendly performances this season. An ASL-interpreted performance of Fun Home will have tickets available for Saturday, March 9th, at 3:00 PM, where an interpreter will be located near the stage for patrons who are deaf or hard of hearing, providing the best sight lines to follow the interpretation and the action on stage.
