Why see Funny Girl?

The Hugely Anticipated Revival On Tour!

Classic musical theatre lovers will be overjoyed to hear that Jules Stein and Bob Merill's iconic show, Funny Girl, is heading out on tour! Telling the autobiographical tale of comedian Fanny Brice, who found fame in the early 20th century. Funny Girl is a humorous and heartful ride through Brice's life, showing that despite her problems, her wit, and smarts kept her own parade going!

What Is The Story?

Funny Girl is the semi-biographical tale of Fanny Brice, a legendary vaudeville entertainer who rose to fame in 1920s and 30s America. Determined to become a big star, she headed into showbiz despite warnings from her mother and friends that she wasn't a 'typical beauty.'

Undeterred, she went on to become a film and stage actress, model, radio star and beloved comedienne filled with gusto and exuberance! But her troubled private life also hit the spotlight - her stormy relationship with the sophisticated Nicky Arnstein has many ups and downs, not least his gambling problem.

With a nostalgic and clever book from Isobel Lennart and music and lyrics from Jule Styne and Bob Merill, including hits such as 'Don't Rain on My Parade' and 'People', Funny Girl is the story of Fanny's rise to fame and her passionate relationship with Nicky and how the outcome of his terrible business decisions led her to take a minute and reflect on what's important in life.
