Fun Home, the Tony Award®-winning musical by Jeanine Tesori and Lisa Kron — based on Alison Bechdel’s graphic memoir, will end its Broadway run September 10 at Circle in the Square. The musical will have played 26 previews and 582 regular performances.

The poignant family drama made history, becoming the first Broadway musical written by women to win the Tony Award® for Best Musical, and 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. Fun Home was nominated for a total of 12 Tony awards and won five, including Best Book (Lisa Kron), Best Direction (Sam Gold) and Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical (Michael Cerveris).

Fun Home, whose writers often said that it was for anyone who had a parent, and anyone who had a child, is set to launch its National Tour this October in Cleveland, OH.
