Worcester County Light Opera Company presents ‘Fun Home’ at BrickBox Theater

Kevin T. Baldwin

After a two-year wait due to the COVID-19 resulting in absence of theater, Worcester County Light Opera Company is finally able to present “Fun Home” a multi-layered musical drama that provides a major emotional impact, bringing tears to more than a few eyes.

Directed by Eric Butler, with music direction by Lenny McGuire and choreography by Denise Day, the musical is based on Alison Bechdel’s best-selling graphic novel and memoir.

“Fun Home” originally won five Tony Awards, including Best Musical and, with this latest staging by Butler and his fine cast, follows the character of “Alison” through three significant phases in her life. WCLOC normally presents productions at its home base, the Grandview Playhouse, but “Fun Home” is being performed at BrickBox Theater at the Jean McDonough Arts Center on Franklin St.
