WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Fearless ugly duckling Fanny Brice resolutely believes she’s ‘a great big clump of talent!’ and sets out to show the world that her star quality can win over Broadway and fulfil her American dream. But as Fanny’s star rises with the legendary Ziegfeld Follies, her stormy marriage to the charismatic but wayward entrepreneur Nick Arnstein falters. Funny Girl brilliantly balances exuberance and energy with genuine emotion. Poignant, gutsy and wildly witty, its dazzling score includes ‘I’m the Greatest Star’, ‘People (who need people are the luckiest people in the world)’ and the rousing ‘Don’t Rain on My Parade’. .
