Funny Girl - 1966 - West End Tickets, News, Info & More

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".

I want to celebrate all the accomplishments I've achieved this year. I am sure that every single individual in this world, was able to accomplish something big or small. These accomplishments might be getting a good grade, landing a job, waking up without feeling tired, eating that dessert you've wanted, facing a hard time, learning something new, and more. Why am I saying this? Well, because sometimes we downsize our accomplishments and we believe that fitting the norm, doing the norm, and being the norm is and should be easy. Following the norm as well as breaking the norm is hard. 2021, you were a big year for me. There are so many things I got to do and try out as well as so many moments I wished I could just lie in my bed and disappear from what was happening.

When an Uber driver asked Charles B. Moss Jr. what area of the film industry he worked in, Moss responded with “the boring part”. All I can say is, after picking up Magic in the Dark, I’m sure you’ll agree that is a vast understatement. But you'll have to see for yourself...Magic in the Dark is more a time capsule than a book, unlocking stories and histories about the movie industry that you won't believe have gone untold.

Happy 2022 everyone! In my last article, I wrote about my favorite moments from 2021, and towards the end, I included some of the things I'm excited about for 2022. In this article, I am going to be diving in-depth into some of the things I talked about and also some things I forgot to mention in that article. The return of live theater is something I think we are all very excited about for 2022. While many shows made their return in 2021, there are many openings still to happen, on Broadway and around the world. While shows are currently being postponed or canceled due to the rise in Coronavirus cases, we can only hope that by the end of 2022 we will see pre-pandemic levels of theater engagement.
