The most thunderous standing ovation heard anywhere since theatres reopened.
Los Angeles Times
This bittersweet comedy is the story of the indomitable Fanny Brice, a girl from the Lower East Side who dreamed of a life on the stage. Everyone told her she’d never be a star, but then something funny happened—she became one of the most beloved performers in history, shining brighter than the brightest lights of Broadway.
Vulnerable and invulnerable, kooky and ardent, Lea Michele lights up like a light.
The New York Times
FUNNY GIRL is back on Broadway for the first time in 58 years, directed by Tony Award winner Michael Mayer (Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Spring Awakening).
The sensational cast, starring Drama Desk Award nominee Lea Michele as Fanny Brice, Tony Award®️ nominee Ramin Karimloo, Tony Award nominee Tovah Feldshuh and Jeff Award winner Jared Grimes, dazzles with the songs “Don’t Rain On My Parade,” “I’m the Greatest Star,” and “People.”
