Funny Girl, the musical comedy classic is back for the first time ever—and Broadway audiences are the luckiest people in the world.
Welcome to musical comedy heaven! Featuring one of the most iconic scores of all time by Jule Styne and Bob Merrill, a revised book from Harvey Fierstein based on the original classic by Isobel Lennart, tap choreography by Ayodele Casel, choreography by Ellenore Scott, and direction from Michael Mayer, this love letter to the theatre has the whole shebang!
The sensational cast, starring Drama Desk Award® nominee Lea Michele as Fanny Brice, Tony Award® nominee Ramin Karimloo, Jeff Award winner Jared Grimes, and Tony Award nominee Tovah Feldshuh, dazzles with the songs “Don’t Rain On My Parade,” “I’m the Greatest Star,” and “People.” This bittersweet comedy is the story of the indomitable Fanny Brice, a girl from the Lower East Side who dreamed of a life on the stage. Everyone told her she’d never be a star, but then something funny happened—she became one of the most beloved performers in history, shining brighter than the brightest lights of Broadway.
• Julie Benko will appear as Fanny Brice on Thursday evenings.
