Fun Home

Centerstage
700 North Calvert Street Baltimore

Welcome to the Bechdel family. But just what family is it? Through the searching eyes of daughter Alison-aged 9, 17, and then 42-we meet her ever-shifting and sometimes unreliable memories of brothers, mother, and above all her repressed father, along with recollections from the family funeral home to Alison's coming out. Based on Bechdel's own best-selling illustrated memoir, this poignant tale harnesses every facet of music and theater to explore and unravel the mysteries of childhood and the surprising secrets that shape a life. Winner of the 2015 Tony Award for Best Musical, from the composer of Caroline, or Change and the writer of 2.5 Minute Ride.

DC Metro Theater Arts - Highly Recommended

"...If you missed seeing Fun Home on Broadway, the Baltimore Center Stage production demonstrates what all the hype was about. This production proves to be in many ways more powerful and intimate. Baltimore Center Stage's Fun Home is a not-to-be-missed musical journey through the troubled mind of an artistic virtuoso and a revered role model of the LGBTQ+ community."

MD Theatre Guide - Recommended

"...Overall, I give "Fun Home" an A-. It is a rich story filled with drama and moving components, ingeniously adapted for the stage. Some aspects were unnecessarily edgy, such as the faux sex scene with Alison (Andrea Prestinario) and Joan (Shannon Tyo) and the kids sang some crude lyrics. Minor details for some, I suppose. However, the music and singing and dancing were stimulating and captivating. The aesthetics of the theatre, the stage, and the ambiance created by the performers make "Fun Home" worthy of the accolades it has received."

DCTheatreScene - Highly Recommended

"...Center Stage gifts us with a superb production of this heartbreaking work. Director Hana Sharif has assembled a near-perfect cast: as Alison, Andrea Prestinario guides us, with bravery and humor, through her memories while at the same time trying to make sense of them herself. As Bruce Bechdel, her father locked in an unhappy world that doesn't fit him, Jeffry Denman is both tyrannical and worthy of our deepest sympathies. His is the most difficult role: wound as tightly as a spring, he yearns for a different existence that even he can't bear to put into words."
