This bittersweet comedy is the story of the indomitable Fanny Brice, a girl from the Lower East Side who dreamed of a life on the stage.

Featuring some of the most iconic songs in theatre history including "Don't Rain On My Parade," "I'm the Greatest Star," and "People," Michael Mayer's bold new production marks the first time Funny Girl has returned to Broadway since its debut 58 years ago.

Tiny Beautiful Things

Chance Theater - April 05, 2024 through April 28, 2024

On the Cripe Stage… Based on the best-selling book by Cheryl Strayed (now a Hulu series, starring Kathryn Hahn), Tiny Beautiful Things follows the relationships between an anonymous advice columnist named Sugar and the many real-life readers who pour out their hearts to her. Academy Award nominee Nia Vardalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding) adapts Strayed’s book into an enrapturing and uplifting play that surges with emotion and is called by Variety “a theatrical hug in turbulent times.” Tiny Beautiful Things is about reaching when you’re stuck, recovering when you’re broken, and finding the courage to ask the questions that are hardest to answer. “Tiny Beautiful Things turns out to be about the endangered art of listening to — and really hearing and responding to — other people…it works beautifully as a sustained theatrical exercise in empathy.” The New York Times “Emphasizes the best in what theatre can do! Take a room full of strangers and help them connect to this personal and powerful show. For someone to connect and listen is a potent thing.” Broadway World Executive Producer Laurie Smits Staude Associate Producers Susan Bowman & Freddie Greenfield Season Producers Bette & Wylie Aitken Associate Season Producer The Family of Mary Kay Fyda-Mar
