Lyrics by Bob Merrill
This bittersweet comedy is the story of the indomitable Fanny Brice, a girl from the Lower East Side who dreamed of a life on the stage. Everyone told her she’d never be a star, but then something funny happened—she became one of the most beloved performers in history, shining brighter than the brightest lights of Broadway.
Featuring some of the most iconic songs in theatre history including “Don’t Rain On My Parade,” “I’m the Greatest Star,” and “People,” Michael Mayer’s bold new production marks the first time Funny Girl has returned to Broadway since its debut 59 years ago, receiving one Tony nomination, three Drama Desk Award nominations, four Drama League Award nominations, and one Chita Rivera Award for Outstanding Male Dancer in a Broadway Show – Jared Grimes.
