Funny Girl is the bittersweet, classic musical drama about Vaudeville’s sweetheart, Fanny Brice. The musical tells the story of the comedienne who started out as a bit player on the Vaudeville stage, but worked her way up to stardom as one of the most acclaimed members of the Ziegfeld Follies.
Fanny’s comedic and musical prowess lead to her rise to fame. The play also explores her amazing, yet strained relationship with her husband, Nick Arnstein, a professional gambler. Funny Girl is witty, glamorous, and a general spectacle that portrays some of the most vibrant characters in Broadway history and their strong, but strained relationships. It features some of Broadway’s most treasured music, such as People and Don’t Rain on My Parade. Tickets $28. Call 978 369-2990 or buy tix on-line.
