'Fun Home' Alumni To Reunite For Virutal Fundraising Event

Tiffany Schleigh will all take part in this very special event.

Based on Alison Bechdel’s graphic memoir, Fun Home features a book and lyrics by Lisa Kronand music by Jeanine Tesori. The unconventional show made history as the first Broadway musical written by women to win the Best Musical Tony, as well as the first Tony-winning musical to have a lesbian as its main character. Tesori and Kron also won the Tony Award for Best Original Score. The musical won five Tony Awards in all, including Best Book (Kron) and Best Direction (Sam Gold).

Viewers of the Fun Home benefit will be able to donate directly to The Actors Fund.
