Here’s a unique and dynamic look at Fanny Brice, the original Funny Girl, and her rise from poverty to become a superstar, then falling for a man who's a crook. This musical couldn’t be timelier with a big-budget revival of “Funny Girl” coming to Broadway soon. In this version we get to meet lots of colorful characters, including Fanny’s good friend Gypsy Rose Lee, Flo Ziegfeld, W. C. Fields, Eddie Cantor, Nicky Arnstein, and Brice's mother and father. Every actress will enjoy singing songs Fanny Brice made famous, as "My Man" and "Second Hand Rose." Other songs include “The Sheik of Araby,” “After the Ball,” “Rose of Washington Square,” “You Made Me Love You,” and more. Easy to stage and an engrossing look into a golden age of show business! (Audio file at right: Opening song, "Rose of Washington Square," and dialogue.)
