Théâtre Marigny - Until 03/07/2020
Songs, music, dancing, emotion, and humour are the recipe for success for Funny Girl, the famous Broadway musical immortalised on screen by the irresistible Barbra Streisand in Billy Wilder’s 1968 adaptation–a role that would immediately make her an international star. Funny Girl tells the story of Fanny Brice, the star of Ziegfeld Follies, a series of musical shows that delighted Broadway in the 1920s. Funny and unusual, Fanny Brice played on her distinctive looks while she sang, danced, and made people laugh. She starred in the show for many years, with her tumultuous and passionate love life reflecting her personality. These were the perfect ingredients to make her life into a must-see Broadway show. Jean-Luc Choplin, the director of the Théâtre Marigny and producer and choreographer Stephen Mear are reviving this famous musical for the first time in France. On stage, the delightful Christina Branco does a superb job in the role of Fanny Brice as she did in the original version. With the added enhancement of Peter McKintosh’s décor and costumes, the show rushes forward at breakneck speed with spirited choreography and a succession of tableaux that are sometimes hilarious and sometimes touching–not to mention the timeless melodies of Bob Merrill and Jule Styne. People, Don’t Rain on My Parade, and I’m the Greatest Star, magnificently performed by Chistina Branco, fan the flames of passion on stage and in the audience. Enjoy it without moderation through 7 Mars 2020.
