Fun Home, the first Broadway musical with a lesbian protagonist, is coming to San Francisco.
The musical is based on an award winning graphic novel -- really a memoir -- by Alison Bechdel. The Tony wining musical adaptation of the novel, with music by Jeanine Tesori and lyrics and book by Lisa Kron, will be the first production for the reopened Curran Theatre in January of 2017.
Promoter Carol Shorenstein Hays announced the booking Monday evening at an event at the Curran, now undergoing renovation, featuring the musical's principal creators: Bechdel, Tesori, Kron, and director Sam Gold.
Hays said Fun Home is the kind of work she hopes to showcase at the Curran: "Brave and bold."
