Seriously. I reviewed Alison Bechdel‘s Fun Home here, and all in all, enjoyed this graphic novel about the coming of age of a lesbian cartoonist, her unusual family and the likely suicide of her almost certainly gay father. And while it was darkly comic in tone, it was not a laugh riot. Now it’s an Broadway musical. Well, strictly speaking, off-Broadway, at the Public Theater.
So what’s that like? I wondered. Alison Bechdel says “It’s really, really good.” Through the magic of Youtube, I have a little preview.
Would I go? Heck, yes!
The New York Times calls it “a beautiful heartbreaker of a musical.” Sadly, the extended run is only through December 29. If you go, feel free to post a comment for the purposes of rubbing it in.
