ONE NIGHT WITH FANNY BRICE To Play Its Final Performance At St. Luke's 8/20

One Night With Fanny Brice, the musical play written, arranged, and directed by Chip Deffaa, making its Off-Broadway debut at St. Luke's Theatre, 308 West 46th Street (between Eighth & Ninth Avenues), will play its final performance Saturday August 20th at 2PM. When it closes, the show will have played 10 previews and 58 performances. Kimberly Faye Greenberg, who originated the role of Fanny in earlier productions, plays the title role.

One Night With Fanny Brice chronicles Fanny Brice'a rise from rather humble origins to become an internationally popular entertainer and the highest paid American singing comedienne - a Ziegfeld star equally effective whether putting over a broadly comic number or a dramatic torch song. A strong, intuitive, street-smart woman, Fanny Brice's life story provided the inspiration for the musical Funny Girl.One Night With Fanny Brice features many of the songs Brice made famous, including "Rose of Washington Square," "My Man" and "Second Hand Rose." The Off-Broadway production of One Night With Fanny Brice follows highly successful engagements in New Jersey, Virginia, and Connecticut.

Kimberly Faye Greenberg has performed across the United States in national tours, regional theatres, and cabarets. Her credits include Danny and Sylvia: The Danny Kaye Musical and The Vagina Monologues (Off-Broadway), Mary Magdalene in The Passion Play The Musical (Park Theatre, New Jersey), and the Off-Broadway revival of Christmas Rappings by Al Carmines at Theatre at Judson. Kimberly has been featured on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", "Charmed" and "ER". She was also host for the educational TV Series "Personal Best."
