Fanny Brice, America’s Funny Girl is playing now until June 17. Written and directed by David H. Bell, this new musical follows Brice as she tells her side of the story about the men in her life, all while singing the songs that made Brice famous- including Rose of Washington Square, Secondhand Rose, and My Man.
Known for her witty banter, Brice was quoted once saying, “Listen, kid! I’ve done everything in the theatre except marry a property man. I’ve been a soubrette in burlesque and I’ve accompanied stereopticon slides. I’ve acted for Belasco and I’ve laid ‘em out in the rows at the Palace. I’ve doubled as an alligator, I’ve worked for the Shuberts, and I’ve been joined to Billy Rose in the holy bonds. I’ve painted the house boards and I’ve sold tickers and I’ve been fired by George M. Cohan. I’ve played in London before the king and in Oil City before miners with lanterns in their caps.”
