Funny Girl

Funny Girl Tickets

Funny Girl, starring Sheridan Smith, 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).

Our Review

The Savoy is currently having a run of great Broadway musicals (and there's one more on the horizon when this one ends): after Gypsy and Guys and Dolls and before the arrival later in the year of Dreamgirls, comes this transfer of Funny Girl from the Menier Chocolate Factory. The first two came from Chichester; and like Gypsy, this one has a score by the great Broadway songsmith Jule Styne.
