Lea Salonga and Eric Kunze return in ‘Fun Home’

Atlantis Theatrical Entertainment Group, together with Metrobank Card Corporation, is proud to  announce that after its sold out run in November last year, the critically acclaimed Tony Award winning musical Fun Home returns to Manila for a limited repeat run of 12 performances on March 10 until the 19th.

Tony Award winner Lea Salonga, Eric Kunze and Cris Villonco reprise their roles in Fun Home. 

Lea stays,  “(Fun Home) gets a little too close, but that also makes it  exciting, scary but fulfilling because it’s incredibly real.”

Fun Home is based on Alison Bechdel’s best-selling graphic memoir, Fun Home, and features music by Jeanine Tesori and book and lyrics by Lisa Kron. The New York Times calls it, “The best new musical to open on Broadway.” The Manila production was hailed as, “Terrific Theater,” and “Undeniably moving, piercing through core.”

Fun Home is the most awarded and acclaimed musical of 2015 winning five Tony Awards including Best Musical. 

When 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.
