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".

Maya Hakvoort und Rob Fowler sind Next to Normal (Fast normal) in DortmundMaya Hakvoort und Rob Fowler sind Next to Normal (Fast normal) in Dortmund
by Marcel Konrath - Jan 28, 2016

Als Next to Normal 2008 am New Yorker Broadway uraufgefuhrt wurde, war die Sensation perfekt: Zwar ist auch in der Gattung Musical langst nicht mehr alles nur reine Unterhaltung, doch nie zuvor wurde das sensible und auch bei uns immer noch tabuisierte Thema der psychischen Erkrankungen so realistisch, einfuhlsam und intensiv auf der Musiktheater-Buhne gezeigt. Es war das erklarte Ziel der beiden Autoren Brian Yorkey und Tom Kitt, dass das Publikum nicht nur zuschauen, sondern auch mitfuhlen sollte. Dies ist ihnen gelungen durch ein gut recherchiertes, zuweilen irrwitziges Libretto, das Tom Kitt nahezu vollstandig durchkomponiert hat. Er verknupft dabei virtuos verschiedene Musikstile und sorgt dafur, dass man trotz der Ernsthaftigkeit des Stoffes immer mal wieder befreit lachen darf. (more...)
