Funny Girl

PLOT SYNOPSIS

Responsible for launching Barbra Streisand into stardom, Funny Girl is a semi-biographical story, which follows the career of Broadway and film star Fanny Brice, and her rocky relationship with entrepreneur and gambler Nick Arnstein. Fanny wants to be a Broadway star, though she doesn’t fit the typical image of beauty. Despite her mother’s attempts to dissuade her from show business, Fanny perseveres and eventually lands a leading role in The Ziegfield Follies.

Enter Nick Arnstein, a sophisticated handsome gambler. Fanny falls in love and chases after Nick, determined to convince him to tie the knot. Marriage and a daughter follow, but happiness eludes them, for as Fanny’s Broadway star rises, Nick’s luck fades away. Starring New York guest artist, Isabelle Decauwert as Fanny Brice, and well-known Hawaii entertainer, Shari Lynn as her mother Rose. Funny Girl features a repertoire of hits songs, like “People” and “Don’t Rain on My Parade”.
