I enjoyed this production however I did not think it was stellar. No stand out songs for me. There were some well done funny moments. Acting was good. I do think that some of the serious parts could have had more of an emotional impact. I'm...continued

Jeanine Tesori's songs really help bring Alison Bechdel's book to vivid emotional life. Terrific performances, great tech. I was really glad I went.

Outstanding performances from amazing cast with fine vocal talents and a very clever blending of three stages of a woman's life. But the family lives under examination are basically sad and depressing, no matter how much of a comedy spin they try...continued

Wonderful, funny play in the fabulously restored Curran Theater. Don't miss this chance to see the award-winning play and the new Curran.

The play starts out with a few laughs and seems like it's going to be *fun* but as the plot develops, you realize that this is a very serious poignant (true) story of family strife. It's about the discovery of oneself and those around you. It's...continued

The play was good, the performers and musicians all delightful. I and my companions had a problem with the sound. We were in the balcony and the performers were miked so heavily that the children's and women's singing was too strident to...continued

The renovated Curran Theatre is a jewel box and Fun Home is the jewel inside. It is a wonderful musical that works on so many levels. The run is relatively short. Don't miss this very special event!

Not our cup of tea. More a social statement event than a musical. If you expect the typical Broadway musical save your money:)

The newly remodeled Curran is beautiful. Upper mezzanine seats, we could see fine. The show was absorbing and well acted and staged. The audience (sold-out) was very enthusiastic. All around a lovely evening.

The show was creative, interesting and musically pleasing. The sound was a problem: it was over-miked and most of the voices were very penetrating and high-pitched, which made it hard to understand the words of several of the characters when...continued

I loved the play and even though I had nose-bleed seats, the acoustics were great and my binoculars really helped. Performances were stellar as was the music/lyrics. I'm so glad Goldstar allowed me on a budget to see this! My only complaints: 1)...continued

Singing voices were just mediocre particularly the children's. Also disappointed in quality of children's dancing. Set was not exciting. And plot was not discussed in description of play on your site properly. It should have been mentioned that it...continued

There were seven of us at this show, and we all liked-to-loved it. Personally, I thought it was one of the best musicals I have ever seen, plus being a really thoughtful and nuanced story (not what musicals are best known for).
