We discuss the powerful LGBT focused production, "Fun Home", a 2015 Tony award Best Musical recipient with Houston Chronicle Theater Critic, Wei-Huan Chen. "Fun Home" is a musical adapted by Lisa Kron and Jeanine Tesori from Alison Bechdel's 2006 graphic memoir of the same name. The story concerns Bechdel's discovery of her own sexuality, her relationship with her gay father, and her attempts to unlock the mysteries surrounding his life. It is the first Broadway musical with a lesbian protagonist.
