Why you should see Fun Home

Because it’s one of the most honest stories of growing up you’ll ever see on a stage.
Because “this show (a finalist for the Pulitzer) could be staged on the back of a truck and still break your heart,” according to Variety.
Because we could all use a little of the startled, pure joy in the song “Changing My Major.”


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 is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals.

Are you a season-pass holder and need to set up your performance date and seat? Check out this guide to our new system.

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 email us with questions.) City Lights recommends but does not require a Covid booster.

Anyone who is turned away at the door or wishes to come back on another date is welcome to exchange their tickets for another performance at no charge, subject to availability.  Learn more about our Covid-19 protocols.
