THE RARE REVIVAL OF A MUSICAL-COMEDY GEM BROUGHT TO LIFE BY VISIONARY DIRECTOR PETER HINTON.
Sassy songstress and comedienne Fanny Brice casts off her humble roots to become the “greatest star” of the Ziegfeld Follies. But will an irresistible romance with a gambling man derail her dreams? Based on the real rags-to-riches life of a vaudeville sensation, Funny Girl features the beloved songs “Don't Rain on My Parade” and “People,” immortalized by Barbra Streisand in the classic 1968 film.
Starring Gabi Epstein as Fanny Brice
