REVIEWS:

NYT Critics' Pick
 
"[A] beautiful heartbreaker of a musical... Fun Home finds a shining clarity that lights up the night." - New York Times

Fun Home is a thoroughly dynamic piece that is just as emotionally piercing, good-humored and enjoyable as it is sharp, focused and culturally conscious." - AmNewYork

"Fun Home is an emotional roller-coaster ride, a grippingly heartwarming story mixed with some of the most smart and joyful musical numbers presently on Broadway." - Huffington Post

"It’s unconventional grist, to be sure, and musical theater is better for it. The material is handled with such delicacy and expertise that it speaks universally about Big Things That Matter: life, love, family, surviving… Be prepared to wipe away tears." - NY Daily News
