About The Show

FUNNY GIRL returns to the London stage for the first time since its 1966 premiere.

With music and lyrics by Bob Merrill and Jule Styne and book by Isobel Lennart, Styne and Merrill, the Broadway smash which skyrocketed Barbra Streisand to stardom, is revived with Olivier and BAFTA award winner Sheridan Smith (previously at the Chocolate factory in Little Shop of Horrors) playing Fanny Brice, who rose from a Brooklyn saloon singer to become one of Broadway’s biggest stars under producer Florenz Ziegfeld. While she was cheered onstage as a great comedienne, offstage she faced a doomed relationship with the man she loved. With a score featuring the classic songs “People”, “You Are Woman, I Am Man” and “Don’t Rain on My Parade”, this new production directed by Michael Mayer (Hedwig & Spring Awakening on Broadway) promises to be the theatrical event of the year.

Originally Produced for the Broadway Stage by Ray Stark
Original New York Production Supervised by Jerome Robbins
Original Production Directed by Garson Kanin
