by Valeria Venturelli - Jun 16, 2015

Sabato 30 maggio si e concluso l'anno accademico della SDM - la Scuola Italiana del Musical con la messa in scena dello spettacolo 'Funny Girl', per la prima volta in Italia, totalmente in lingua italiana grazie alla traduzione di Alice Mistroni. Puo sembrare una scelta azzardata da parte di un'accademia mettere in scena uno spettacolo di tale livello e fama, portato al successo grazie al film del 1968 che ha visto nel ruolo di Fanny Brice una spettacolare ed indimenticabile Barbra Streisand. E forse lo e stata, una scelta azzardata: per quanto impegno e tempo si sia speso, rimane comunque un saggio di fine anno e sicuramente una compagnia teatrale professionista avrebbe reso piu onore (avrebbe certamente avuto piu mezzi per farlo) ad questo spettacolo sacro della storia di Broadway. Ma personalmente apprezzo il rischio, mille volte 'Funny Girl' piuttosto dei soliti 'Cats' e 'Grease'. (more...)
