Funny Girl is a musical with a book by Isobel Lennart, music by Jule Styne, and lyrics by Bob Merrill. The semi-biographical plot is based on the life and career of Broadway, film star and comedienne Fanny Brice and her stormy relationship with entrepreneur and gambler Nick Arnstein. Its original title was "My Man." 

On Glee, several songs from the film adaptation have been performed. This is the character, Rachel Berry's favorite musical. In Season Four, a fictional revival is being produced and Rachel auditions for the role of Fanny Brice. In Tina in the Sky with Diamonds Rachel finally receives the role of Fanny.

The show opens at the Saint James Theatre.


The musical covers the life of comedienne Fannie Brice, from her early days in the Jewish slums of the Lower East Side, to the height of her career with the Ziegfeld Follies, including her marriage to and eventual divorce from her first husband, Nick Arnstein.
