Upcoming and GIVEAWAY: Funny Girl, Sept. 26 - Oct. 8, Fisher Theatre, Detroit {ends 7/24}*Disclosure: I have an ongoing media relationship with Broadway in Detroit. The opinions expressed here, however, are my own.

I've definitely heard of Funny Girl the movie, with Barbra Streisand, and I've heard good things, but I've never actually seen it (it's streaming on Prime, so I'll have to check it out). Funny Girl the musical will be coming to the Fisher Theatre in late September and I'm looking forward to seeing it.

About the show:
FUNNY GIRL, the sensational musical comedy revival, is coming to Detroit’s Fisher Theatre for a limited two-week engagement from September 26 to October 8 as a part of Broadway In Detroit’s 2023-24 Subscription Season. Tickets will go on sale at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, July 7 and will be available online at BroadwayinDetroit.com and in person at the Fisher Theatre Box Office starting at noon.

Welcome to musical comedy heaven! The “vivacious and delightfully glitzy” (Vogue) Broadway revival features iconic songs, including “Don’t Rain On My Parade,” “I’m the Greatest Star,” and “People.” Breaking box office records week after week and receiving unanimous raves on Broadway, this bittersweet comedy is the story of the indomitable Fanny Brice. As a girl from the Lower East Side who dreamed of a life on the stage, everyone told her she’d never be a star, but then something funny happened—she became one of the most beloved performers in history, shining brighter than the brightest lights of Broadway. The Observer describes the revival as “sparkling and explosively entertaining!”
