The news is out that Tony nominees Lisa Kron and Jeanine Tesori are working on a musical adaptation of Alison Bechdel's graphic memoir, Fun Home. The project will be part of the Ojai Playwrights Conference in Ojai, California in August. (Read the Playbill News article here.)

Here's my multi-stage reaction to this surreal development:

First thought: Really?
Second thought: I love Fun Home, and I love musicals--why shouldn't it be great?
Third thought: Wait, really?
Fourth thought: The set designer is going to have it so easy. Bechdel's already done all the work.
Fifth thought: I can't wait for more details!
