Don't miss your opportunity to see FUNNY GIRL at Theatre By The Sea, as this is the only theatre in the country allowed to produce the show in 2020.  Hilarious, passionate, tender and entertaining, FUNNY GIRL tells the story of Fanny Brice who, in the Ziegfeld Follies, in Hollywood films, and on the radio, was one of the most celebrated entertainers of her time. With humor, talent, and chutzpah, young Fanny, an awkward Jewish girl who “isn’t pretty,” defies the odds and becomes one of the greatest stars of her generation. This iconic musical explores her roller coaster vaudeville life and rise to super-stardom and her turbulent romance with gambler Nick Arnstein. With one of the most incredible scores in musical theatre which includes “People,” “Don’t Rain On My Parade,” “I’m the Greatest Star,” “The Music That Makes Me Dance,” and “You Are Woman, I Am Man,” FUNNY GIRL is everything a musical should be – romantic, touching and downright hysterical.
