Funny Girl, is back in London’s West End for the first time in 50 years. Featuring some of the most iconic songs in film and theatre history, including “People” and “Don’t Rain On My Parade”, this musical classic tells the fascinating and bitter-sweet story of Fanny, whose vocal talents and comedic ability see her rise from Brooklyn music hall singer to Broadway star, and her tempestuous relationship with gambler Nicky Arnstein.
This bold new production, with music by Jule Styne and lyrics by Bob Merrill, a book by Isobel Lennart from an original story by Miss Lennart, with revisions by Harvey Fierstein, is directed by Michael Mayer (Hedwig and the Angry Inch & Spring Awakening on Broadway).
From the week commencing 18 July, Sheridan is scheduled to perform Tuesday through Saturday, with Natasha Barnes playing Fanny Brice on Monday evenings.
The producers of Funny Girl cannot guarantee the appearance of any particular artist, which is always subject to illness and holidays.
