In the Ziegfeld Follies, in Hollywood films, and on the radio, Fanny Brice was one of the most celebrated entertainers of her time. With humor, talent, and chutzpah, young Fanny, an awkward Jewish girl who “isn’t pretty,” defies the odds and becomes one of the greatest stars of her generation. Her rise to super-stardom, and her turbulent romance with gambler Nick Arnstein, are explored through Bob Merrill and Jule Styne’s unforgettable score, which includes “I’m the Greatest Star,” “Don’t Rain On My Parade,” “People,” “The Music That Makes Me Dance,” and “You Are Woman, I Am Man.”
