About the Show...

    The story of beloved comedienne Fanny Brice begins with her irrepressible youth in New York’s Lower East Side, where the stage-struck teenager clowns her way through burlesque and vaudeville, with dreams of making it big. Her big break in the Ziegfeld Follies appears on the horizon, and the stardom she has always longed for is within her grasp. After meeting Nick Arnstein, a handsome and charismatic gambling man with a gentle side, Fanny immediately falls in love. They eventually marry happily, but no honeymoon lasts forever. Fanny has to choose between the brilliant show business career she loves, or the adored husband who increasingly resents her tremendous success.

    A triumphant story of starry success and a bittersweet story of love, Jule Styne and Bob Merrill’s Funny Girl is a musical theatre classic which celebrates the exuberant and elegant flavor of Broadway in the 1910s and 20s and the comic genius of Fanny Brice. Featuring such beloved songs as “People,” “Don’t Rain on My Parade,” "You Are Woman, I Am Man," and “The Music That Makes Me Dance.”
