Funny Girl – The Musical

Talieisn Arts Centre, Swansea University - 25mins walk or a short drive from our hotel

 

Directed by: Michael Mayer

 

Starring: Sheridan Smith, Darius Campbell

 

Following it's  record-breaking,  sell-out run in London’s West End and national tour, the critically-acclaimed musical   Funny Girl, features Sheridan Smith in “an unforgettable star turn” (The Times). Funny Girl    is semi-biographical, based on the life and career of Broadway star, film actress and comedienne Fanny Brice (a role made famous by Barbara Streisand on Broadway and  in  the 1968 film adaptation), and her stormy relationship with entrepreneur and gambler Nick Arnstein.

 

Praised by critics as having “irresistible charm, wit and warmth” (Metro), and hailing Sheridan Smith as “the greatest star by far” (The Daily Telegraph),   Funny Girl    features a host of  iconic and  timeless musical numbers including “People,” “I’m the Greatest Star,” and “Don’t Rain On My Parade.”

 

Hilarious, glorious  and ‘exhilarating’ THE INDEPENDENT

 

‘Sheridan Smith is hilarious, glorious, touching. An unforgettable star turn’  THE TIMES

 

Running time: 3hrs (tbc)
