Musical 'Fun Home' Gives Voice to First Lesbian Lead Character

Broadway is getting its first lesbian lead character next month when "Fun Home," an award-winning musical about family, sexuality and acceptance, opens next month. Based on the best-selling, graphic memoir, "Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic," by writer/cartoonist Alison Bechdel, the coming-of-age musical examines her dysfunctional family and relationship with her late father, a closeted gay man who ran a funeral home and taught English in rural Pennsylvania.
