Funny Girl

Funny Girl brought global fame to Barbra Streisand 50 years ago, boasting some of the most iconic songs in film and theatre history, including People and Don’t Rain On My Parade. Half a century later, this ‘exhilarating embrace of a production’ (The Independent) tours the UK after wowing critics and audiences alike in London’s West End.

The critical consensus

It’s a show which doesn’t have a weakness.

*****Mike Smith, The Edinburgh Reporterer, 19/04/2017

An irresistible tale of showbiz survival.

*****Neil Cooper, Coffee-Table Notes, 20/04/2017

The production is never less than bright and breezy, and serves very well to highlight a central performance that is undoubtedly worth going to see.

****(*)Hugh Simpson, All Edinburgh Theatre, 20/04/2017

This production of Funny Girl is a timeless tale told with new verve; overall perfection of vocal delivery and spot-on comic timing.

****(*)Sarah McIntosh, Broadway Baby, 21/04/2017

Iit's hard to separate Brice from the woman who won an Academy Award playing her in 1968, Barbra Streisand. But, if you're to enjoy this stage version of Funny Girl, that's exactly what you need to do.

***(*)(*)Kelly Apter, The List, 20/04/2017

The staging is unobtrusively brilliant, the dance is exhilarating, and the supporting performances...are flawless.

****(*)Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman, 22/04/2017

Funny Girl: The Musical is every bit as impressive as you’d expect and a little bit more.

*****Tamarin Fountain, The Wee Review, 20/04/2017

This is an unmissable, memorable and long-overdue revival of a musical theatre classic. Pure class from curtain up to curtain down.

*****Lauren Humphreys, The Reviews Hub, 01/06/2017
