Based on an original story by Isobel Lennart

Funny Girl is the semi-autobiographical tale of Fanny Brice's meteoric rise to fame and her stormy relationship with Nick Arnstein, a wealthy and charming gambler. From her start as a gawky Brooklyn teen fast-talking her way into show business to becoming the toast of New York to the unraveling of her personal life, Funny Girl is a stunning, richly told tour de force about one of Broadway's biggest stars. The endearing, poignant musical features a parade of great tunes including "People" and "Don't Rain on My Parade".

BWW Reviews: FUNNY GIRL e l'ambizione della SDMBWW Reviews: FUNNY GIRL e l'ambizione della SDM
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...)

by Michael Rabice - Jun 1, 2015

Cy Coleman and Dorothy Fields iconic 1960's musical SWEET CHARITY is playing on the stage of the Festival Theatre as this year's musical offering at the Shaw Festival in Niagara on the Lake, Ontario. Visually stunning and often energetically infectious, this musical, with book by Neil Simon, comes at a time when everything mod is new again. The 'MAD MEN' era has made a resurgence in clothing and home furnishings, so this nod to the past seems perfectly placed. Coleman's score includes such standards as 'Big Spender' and 'If My Friends Could See Me Now.' (more...)

Liz Callaway's For the Record show last night at The Metropolitan Room was literally the live recording of songs in preparation for her upcoming autumn CD release, The Essential Liz Callaway, 'and another recording I have up my sleeve later.' Except for a pause between numbers, choices with seemingly little cohesive rhyme or reason were so fluently bridged by amiable, explanatory patter one might've thought this was a thematic show. The eminently likeable performer made us feel we were in her living room, while never letting down professional standards. (more...)
