Latest Review: "Loved the show. Sheridan Smith is amazing. She is one of our most talented versatile actresses. D..."

Important Info: From the week commencing 18 July, Sheridan is scheduled to perform Tuesday through Saturday, with Natasha Barnes playing Fanny Brice on Monday evenings. The producers of Funny Girl cannot guarantee the appearance of any particular artist, which is always subject to illness and holidays.

This spring season audiences at the Savoy Theatre will be treated to the vocal talents of Sheridan Smith as she takes to the stage as Fanny Brice in the iconic 1960s musical Funny Girl. Under the direction of the acclaimed Broadway talent Michael Mayer and with choreography from Lynne Page, the show is a transfer from the Menier Chocolate Factory and a revival of a beloved New York hit.

With a book by Isobel Lennart, plus music and lyrics by Jule Styne and Bob Merrill respectively, Funny Girl is a popular show that has seen some big names step into its iconic parts over the decades, from Barbra Streisand to Debbie Gibson, and for the latest London production it has landed one of the biggest musical theatre stars of the time.

Sheridan Smith has been a part of some of the biggest shows in recent years, earning accolades for her stand-out performances. These range from Legally Blonde The Musical at the Savoy Theatre to Flare Path at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, both of which earned her Laurence Olivier Awards. She is also known to audiences for her television roles in the likes of Cilla, in which she portrayed Cilla Black, and Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps.

For Funny Girl, however, she takes on the part of Fanny Brice and takes audiences back to the times before and after the First World War. Brice was a real star of the stage and screen during that era and Funny Girl takes a look at her life spent with her husband, the entrepreneur Nick Arnstein, with their story explored as she awaits his release from prison. The show covers the period of her life from her first vaudeville role right up to her husband’s crime.

The show has previously been seen in the West End, with the premiere show initially starring Barbra Streisand in 1966.

Funny Girl runs at the Savoy Theatre from Saturday 9th April 2016 following the show’s run at the Menier Chocolate Factory, which ends in March. It replaces Guys And Dolls, which stars Sophie Thompson and runs at the West End venue from December to March.
