One of the most celebrated musicals in recent Broadway history is making its San Diego debut.
A production of the Tony Award-winning musical "Fun Home" is opening the San Diego Repertory Theatre's 43rd season.
"Fun Home" is about family life, love, memory and a father-daughter relationship. It tells the coming out story of lesbian cartoonist Alison Bechdel and her quest to understand her gay father, who for most of his life hid his own sexuality. The musical, by playwright Lisa Kron and composer Jeanine Tesori, is based on Bechdel's graphic memoir of the same name.
The San Diego Rep's production of "Fun Home" runs September 6-30 at the Lyceum Theatre in downtown San Diego.
Amanda Naughton, who plays "Alison" and understudied that role on the national tour and the Rep's artistic director Sam Woodhouse, discuss the production Monday on Midday Edition.
