Sydney Lucas, the Tony-nominated young star of Fun Home, will depart the production Oct. 4.
Lucas created the role in the musical's developmental Off-Broadway premiere at the Public Theater in 2012, and returned for the full 2013-14 run there, as well as the acclaimed Broadway transfer last season. She earned nominations from the Lucille Lortel, Outer Critics Circle, Drama League, Drama Desk Award and Tony Awards, and became the youngest actress to ever win an Obie Award.
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."
