Hot on the heels of a record-breaking and critically acclaimed West End run, this ‘utterly irresistible’ new production of ‘Funny Girl’, starring West End leading lady Natasha J Barnes as Fanny Brice and Darius Campbell reprising his role as Nick Arnstein, touches down at Wolverhampton Grand Theatre from Monday 24 to Saturday 29 July. ‘Funny Girl’ brought global fame to Barbra Streisand 50 years ago and boasts some of the most iconic songs in film and theatre history including ‘People’ and ‘Don’t Rain on My Parade’. The show tells the story of Fanny, whose vocal talents and comedic ability see her rise from Brooklyn music-hall singer to Broadway star. For tickets call 01902 429212 or visit grandtheatre.co.uk.
