About Funny Girl

Sheridan Smith will reprise her highly praised performance of Fanny Brice at selected venues for the UK tour of Funny Girl including Edinburgh Playhouse.

Hot on the heels of a record breaking, critically acclaimed West End run this ‘utterly irresistible’ (The Sunday Times) new production of Funny Girl is now coming to venues around the UK.

Funny Girl brought global fame to Barbra Streisand 50 years ago and boasts some of the most iconic songs in film and theatre history, including People and Don’t Rain On My Parade. This ‘exhilarating’ (The Independent) musical tells the story of Fanny Brice, whose vocal talents and comedic ability see her rise from Brooklyn music hall singer to Broadway star.

Don’t miss your chance to see this ‘phenomenal’ (The Telegraph) production in 2017.

**** ‘Triumphantly reinvents Funny Girl for a new generation’
Evening Standard

**** 4 Stars ‘Michael Mayer’s vivacious production has wit, charm and energy, sparkly choreography, and a strong, ebullient cast.’
Financial Times
