Funny Girl – The Musical

25th Oct 2018 @ 19:00 - 21:45


Part of a worldwide release of the smash-hit stage production that played to critical acclaim at the Menier Chocolate Factory, in the West End and on tour, Michael Mayer’s production was filmed during the final week of its run at the Manchester Palace Theatre.With music by Jule Styne, lyrics by Bob Merrill and book by Isobel Lennart, the Broadway smash which skyrocketed Barbra Streisand to stardom is revived with Sheridan Smith playing Fanny Brice, who rose from the Lower East Side of New York to become one of Broadway’s biggest stars under producer Florenz Ziegfield. While she was cheered onstage as a great comedienne, offstage she faced a doomed relationship with the man she loved. With a score featuring now-classic songs such as “People”, “You Are Woman, I Am Man” and “Don’t Rain on My Parade”, this new production is a must-see theatrical event.
“A winningly exuberant performance. The most brilliant comic actress at work today.”
