About Funny Girl on Broadway

Life's candy and the sun's a ball of butter now that Funny Girl is on Broadway! Lea Michele stars as Fanny Brice through September 3 only.

Funny Girl has become a musical theatre classic most notable for the song "Don't Rain On My Parade." Though it has been produced on the West End and worldwide, it has not had a Broadway revival until now.

The Funny Girl musical tells the semi-autobiographical story of Fanny Brice, a real-life Ziegfeld Follies star who entered into a turbulent relationship with the gambler Nicky Arnstein. As she waits for him to return from prison, she reflects on her relationship with Arnstein and how she met him at the outset of her performance career. Fanny falls into a luxurious life with him and is determined not to let his past dealings in gambling interfere with their love. By choosing to stay with Nick, however, Fanny is making a big wager of her own in more ways than one.

Funny Girl first opened on Broadway in 1964 with Barbra Streisand in the title role. The production ran for more than 1,300 performances over three years and received eight Tony Award nominations. A hit film adaptation was released four years later, gathering eight Academy Award nominations. Streisand, reprising her leading role, won Best Actress.

Lea michele is wonderful!, Classic, Entertaining

See it if you want to see Lea Michele bring to life the role of Fanny Brice in the way it deserves … with talented star power and strong vocals

Don’t see it if you expect more than unimpressive staging and sets for such a anticipated revival like Funny Girl.

Classic, Great singing, Delightful, Entertaining

See it if An entertaining musical with a terrific score and sensational star performance by Lea Michele. Much to my surprise I liked it very much.

Don’t see it if There's nothing new or creative here, the direction is undistinguished and the set bland. But put that aside, the show & cast is wonderful.

Julie benko dazzles, Great dancing, Great acting, Great staging, Great singing

See it if Non-stop glitzy number after number-- singing, dancing, tap dancing, and lots of chutzpah. What's not to love ?!

Don’t see it if This material is very dated, not clever or modern in any way. Enjoyable in a very classic kinda way. This will not make you think deeply.

'Funny Girl' review — Lea Michele is the greatest star in her triumphant Broadway return

5 of 5

Lea Michele in Funny Girl on Broadway is the theatre event of the season. It’s live theatre at its finest. It’s the perfect marriage of actress and role. The very nature of attending this show is theatrical. For the uninitiated, Lea Michele is a seasoned Broadway performer, who made her debut in Les Misérables at age 8 and rose to fame in her early 20s in the cult hit Spring Awakening before going on to more mainstream television roles, namely the ambitious and talented Rachel Berry on...
