When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist 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 past and present, Alison relives her unique childhood playing 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. Fun Home is a refreshingly honest, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.
Fun Home previews July 14 and 15, and runs through Aug. 21. (No show on July 17.) Showtimes are Thurs.-Sat., 8 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets are $25-$52, with discounts available for students, seniors (65+), educators, and groups, and for military personnel. (There is a $2 surcharge for phone and in-person buys.)
We would rate this production PG-13 for mature themes and some language.
City Lights is a fully vaccinated company. Everyone who works here is regularly tested for Covid-19, and we have a trained Covid Compliance Officer on staff. We require everyone in the building to be masked, except actors on stage. This is a request made by many of our audience members, and we want everyone to feel safe in our theater.
In addition, all must provide proof of vaccination with matching ID, or proof of a recent negative Covid test. That means a PCR test within 72 hours, or a rapid antigen test within 24 hours (please write the test date on the indicator and take a picture). City Lights recommends but does not require a Covid booster.
