Inland Valley Repertory Theater company (IVRT) will present the regional premier of the musical "Fun Home" at the Candlelight Pavilion in Claremont on Tuesday and Wednesday, September 17 and 18 for three performances only. "Fun Home" is a groundbreaking Broadway musical based on a graphic novel by Alison Bechdel.
Fun Home, a groundbreaking Broadway musical and the first to feature a lesbian protagonist, is based on a graphic novel by Alison Bechdel. IVRT’s production features Ashlee Espinosa, Rachel Addington and Maya Fischbein as Alison Bechdel at age 43, 19 and 10. Miss Fischbein previously understudied and played the role of “Small Alison” in the original Broadway production. The nine-member cast also features Tracy Ray Reynolds, Katherine Washington, Abel Miramontes, Andrew Barr, Lucca Beene. John LaLonde plays Bruce Bechdel.
From the website funhomebroadway.com:
One of the most groundbreaking productions ever to hit Broadway, Fun Home is the winner of five 2015 Tony Awards® including Best Musical. Based on Alison Bechdel's best-selling graphic memoir, Fun Home features music by Jeanine Tesori, book and lyrics by Lisa Kron and direction by Sam Gold, whose work on this production earned them Tony Awards for Best Score, Best Book and Best Direction.
Fun Home introduces us to Alison at three different ages, revealing memories of her uniquely dysfunctional family – her mother, brothers and volatile, brilliant, enigmatic father – that connect with her in surprising new ways. This intimate and emotional theatrical experience is performed entirely in the round, bringing audiences closer to Alison’s story than ever before. A refreshingly honest musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes, Fun Home is “a blazingly original heartbreaker and a nonstop treasure of invention” (Newsday).
