Coming to TPAC

Funny Girl At TPAC!

Featuring one of the most iconic musical scores of all time, including classic songs “Don’t Rain On My Parade,” “I’m the Greatest Star,” and “People,” 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. Set in New York City in the 1910’s, everyone told her she’d never be a star because she didn’t have the required looks, but then something funny happened—she became one of the most beloved performers in history.

This semi-biographical Broadway musical is familiar even to non-Broadway patrons through the 1968 film adaptation, which won Barbara Streisand an Oscar and Golden Globe. The updated book is from Harvey Fierstein based on the original classic by Isobel Lennart, tap choreography by Ayodele Casel, choreography by Ellenore Scott, and direction from Michael Mayer, this is a love letter to the theatre.

Performances are January 2-7 at TPAC’s Andrew Jackson Hall. For tickets, see Funny Girl | Broadway Shows in Nashville at TPAC
