Lisa Kron and Jeanine Tesori, the co-creators of Fun Home, which received 12 Tony nominations, including Best Musical, are collaborating on a new project.

Kron, who earned 2015 Tony nominations for Best Book of a Musical and Best Original Score, told Playbill.com, "Jeanine and I are going to start working on a new musical."

Although the lyricist and librettist was unable to share more details about the new project, she did discuss Fun Home's move from Off-Broadway's Public Theater to Broadway's Circle in the Square.

"I think when we got into the round," Kron said, "we all felt that this is how this play is meant to be seen. It just allows it to permeate the audience in a much more direct way than it could ever do in a proscenium."

Fun Home is described as "a fresh, daring new musical based on the acclaimed graphic novel by Alison Bechdel. When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist Alison dives deep into her past to tell the story of the volatile, brilliant, one-of-a-kind man whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life. Moving between past and present, Alison relives her unique childhood playing at the family’s Bechdel Funeral Home, her growing understanding of her own sexuality and the looming, unanswerable questions about her father's hidden desires."
