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.
Also in the cast, delivering acclaimed performances, are Mikkie Bradshaw-Volante, Yanah Laurel, Laurence Mossman, Katie Bradshaw and Andee Achacoso with Noel Comia, Daniel Drilon, Albert Silos and Teddy Velasco.
Fun Home is directed by Bobby Garcia with musical direction by Ceejay Javier, vocal direction by ManMan Angsico, choreography by Cecile Martinez, light design by Adam Honore, set design by Faust Peneyra, costume design by Oz Go, sound design by Kevin Heard, projection design by GA Fallarme and hair and make up design by Johann de la Fuente.
The limited repeat run of Fun Home is at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza, Makati.
