“It’s mind-blowing to think we get to take this all across the country. Every step of the way with ‘Fun Home’ it’s felt like, ‘It’s so risky. It’s so new. It’s pushing boundaries,'” said director Sam Gold. “What we keep finding at every step of the way is that the show has something so true and deep and emotional at its core that everyone opens up to it.”
