The Music of Fun Home

"Among the memorable songs, accompanied by a seven-person onstage orchestra, are those charting turning points in Alison’s coming to terms with her attraction to women.

The ebullient “Ring of Keys,” for example, makes Small Alison’s recognition of that attraction, in an ordinary moment in a diner, warmly concrete. A masculine woman enters, and the girl is smitten by “Your swagger and your bearing/ And the just-right clothes you’re wearing/ Your short hair and your dungarees/ And your lace-up boots.” It’s the poetry of everyday surprise.
