Life’s candy and the sun’s a ball of butter now that Funny Girl is returning to New York! The revival of Funny Girl on Broadway is coming in spring 2022. Funny Girl tickets will be available on New York Theatre Guide soon.
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. In the show, he reflects on her 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.
