Funny Girl

Gawky actress Fanny Brice (Sheridan Smith) electrifies the theater world when she puts her own hilarious spin on a shmaltzy romantic ballad during a performance with the Ziegfeld Follies. As her star rises, she finds love with handsome gambler Nicky Arnstein (Darius Campbell), but their relationship becomes stormy as her new beau begins to resent her success. Following its record-breaking sell-out run in London’s West End and national tour, the critically-acclaimed musical Funny Girl comes to cinema screens, featuring classic numbers like “People,” “I’m the Greatest Star,” and “Don’t Rain On My Parade.”

Written by Isobel Lennart and Harvey Fierstein – Music by Julie Styne – Lyrics by Bob Merrill – 2 hr 44 min
