REVIEWS

I can’t think of a recent musical — or play, for that matter — that has done a better job at finding theatrical expression for the wayward dynamics of remembering. That includes the now-you-see-now-you-don’t-aspect of David Zinn’s inspired in-the-round set, in which furniture materializes through trapdoors, as well as the ruthless clarity and sudden, obscuring dimness of Ben Stanton’s lighting.
But most important is the music, a career high for Ms. Tesori (“Violet,”“Caroline, or Change”), which captures both the nagging persistence of memory and its frustrating insubstantiality, with leitmotifs that tease and shimmer. (John Clancy did the nuanced orchestrations.) The music is woven so intricately into Ms. Kron’s time-juggling script that you’ll find yourself hard pressed to recall what exactly was said and what was sung.

Last season's best off-Broadway musical is now this season's best Broadway musical. Fun Home is the best Broadway musical in years.
Don't let the subject matter fool you. You might have heard that the Jeanine Tesori-Lisa Kron musical, adapted from the autobiographical "graphic novel" by Alison Bechdel, is about a lesbian cartoonist and her gay father who kills himself. That might not sound like a cheery way to spend a couple of hours, but don't be misled. Fun Home is an emotional roller-coaster ride, a grippingly heartwarming story mixed with some of the most smart and joyful musical numbers presently on Broadway.

The celebrated Broadway veteran Kuhn, whose stage time is brief, nearly steals the show with her 11 o'clock number, "Days and Days," a startlingly gorgeous anthem about living in a way that makes you happy.Cerveris, meanwhile, delivers his most richly nuanced work in years. His final scene, a car ride with Malone's drily hilarious and conflicted adult Alison, is a shattering, edge-of-your-seat, heart-pounding tour de force. These two performers create an unforgettable moment in an unforgettable show, one that will leave theatergoers shaken to the core — and perhaps wanting to call up their parents to say, "I love you." In an era of jukebox musicals, there's only one thing left to say: Thank God Fun Home is on Broadway.
