September 26
8:35 PM 2012
John Rampage, Artistic Director for Diamond Head Theatre (DHT), announces the opening of the 2012-2013 season with FUNNY GIRL.  BroadwayWorld has a first look at the production below.

Starring New York guest artist, Isabelle Decauwert as Fanny Brice, well-known Hawaii entertainer Shari Lynn as her mother Rose, Benoit Weber as Nick Arnstein, and Bob Frederick as Florenz Ziegfeld, Jr. “Funny Girl” features a repertoire of hit songs, like "People" and "Don't Rain on My Parade."

The semi-biographical story, which launched Barbra Streisand's career, chronicles vaudeville star Fanny Brice's rise from humble Lower East beginnings to the heights of stardom. Fanny wants to be 'beautiful' rather than just 'funny', and she succeeds, but at some cost, for as her star rises, her gambler husband Nick Arnstein's falls.  “Funny Girl” is being directed and choreographed by: John Rampage, DHT Artistic Director with Musical Direction by: Emmett G. Yoshioka

Original Music is by Jule Styne; Lyrics By Bob Merril; Book By Isobel Lennart; Original Story By Miss Lennart
