Alison Bechdel, the celebrated author of the graphic memoir upon which the Tony-winning musical Fun Home is based, was a guest on "Late Night with Seth Meyers" July 29.
Bechdel discussed the Bechdel Test, her reaction to the news that her memoir was to become the basis for a new musical and what it has been like seeing her life played out onstage.
