About Funny Girl on Broadway

See Lea Michele as the greatest star in Funny Girl through September 3 only! The classic musical is back on Broadway for the first time since its original production in 1964. Don’t let anyone rain on your parade.

The Glee star’s first Broadway performance in a decade is an unmissable one — she “stands alone as a singular Broadway performer” (New York Theatre Guide) in this show filled with plenty of comedy, romance, and old-fashioned showbiz flair. As the Follies showgirl who risks everything for love, “she even lights up like a light. Both vulnerable and invulnerable, kooky and ardent, she makes the show worth watching again,” The New York Times raved of Michele’s “stupendous” performance. Plus, you have the rare chance to hear all Funny Girl’s fan-favorite songs live, from “I’m the Greatest Star” to “People” to the iconic showstopper “Don’t Rain On My Parade.”

Hear the music that makes you dance once again, and see this beloved show on stage for the first time in nearly 60 years.

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.

More information about Funny Girl on Broadway

The Funny Girl musical tells the semi-autobiographical story of variety performer Fanny Brice, who defied the odds to become a comedy actress in the legendary Ziegfeld Follies. She falls in love with the suave gambler Nick Arnstein, but Nick’s shady past casts a shadow on their relationship. Can she have fame and love at once, or does choosing one mean losing the other?

Funny Girl's story of determination, romance, and life in the theatre is perfect for anyone looking to laugh, and Fanny is relatable to anyone who's ever taken a chance on a dream.

The original Funny Girl Broadway production, featuring a book by Isobel Stennart, music by Jule Styne, and lyrics by Bob Merrill, premiered in 1964 to critical acclaim. Within four years, a film adaptation came out that made a household name — and an Academy Award winner — out of Barbra Streisand.

Both iterations of the show have cemented their legacy in performing arts history: Funny Girl's original Broadway cast recording is in the Grammy Hall of Fame, and the Funny Girl movie is in the National Film Registry as a culturally significant movie.

What to Watch For

  • Glee fans will recognize Funny Girl as lead character Rachel Berry’s (played by Lea Michele) favorite musical. Rachel even auditions for a fictional revival of the show during Glee’s fifth season, lands the role of Fanny, and wins a Tony Award for it. How fitting, then, that Michele landed the role in real life!
  • This Funny Girl Broadway revival features a revised book based on Stennart’s original, penned by four-time Tony winner Harvey Fierstein. A 2015 London revival of Funny Girl was the first to use his book.
  • Fanny Brice performed in Broadway shows including Fioretta, Sweet and Low, and Billy Rose's Crazy Quilt.
  • Brice’s son-in-law Ray Stark, who was married to Brice’s daughter with Nick Arnstein, produced the original Funny Girl musical.
  • The original Broadway production was nominated for eight Tony Awards in 1964 but won none. Granted, Funny Girl had stiff competition — the show lost in five categories, including Best Musical, to Hello, Dolly! starring Carol Channing.
  • Carol Burnett originally turned down the starring role in the ‘60s, as Fanny was Jewish, but Burnett wasn’t. Styne thought of Streisand after seeing her on Broadway in I Can Get It For You Wholesale, and the rest is history!
