If you’re looking for a musical for people who don’t like musicals, you probably can’t do better than Fun Home, the stage adaptation of Alison Bechdel’s wonderful graphic memoir. It’s not a slavish regurgitation of what worked so well on the page, but a true adaptation, complete with some inventive, unexpected flourishes. One of my favorites is a Motown-infused number in which the Bechdel kids jump in and out of coffins with aplomb while singing a jingle promoting their family’s funeral home (“Stand right here when you sign the book/This is called an aneurysm hook!”).
