This "exhilarating" musical celebrates the exuberant and elegant flavour of Broadway in 1910s and 20s, and tells the real life story of beloved singer, actress and comedienne Fanny Brice, whose vocal talents and comedic ability see her (despite the discouragement of her friends and neighbours, who tell her that she isn't pretty enough for the stage), rise from Brooklyn music hall singer to Broadway star.
As she awaits her husband's release from prison (entrepreneur and gambler Nick Arnstein), Fanny reflects on her incredible true story in a series of flashbacks.
A triumphant story of starry success, coupled with a bittersweet story of love.
Funny Girl is a musical theatre classic with a sensational score filled with show stoppers including: I'm the Greatest Star, People and Don't Rain on my Parade.
Funny Girl opened on Broadway in 1964 starring Barbra Streisand in the role of Fanny Brice, and ran for a total of 1348 performances.
