Following its record-breaking, sell-out run in London’s West End and national tour, the critically-acclaimed musical Funny Girl comes to a cinema near you, featuring Sheridan Smith in “an unforgettable star turn” (The Times). Funny Girl is semi-biographical, based on the life and career of Broadway star, film actress and comedienne Fanny Brice (a role made famous by Barbara Streisand on Broadway and in the 1968 film adaptation), and her stormy relationship with entrepreneur and gambler Nick Arnstein.
The revival filmed was originally produced at the Menier Chocolate Factory in the UK, which later transferred to the West End in April 2016.
The production later toured the UK the following year with Sheridan Smith in the title role - where it was filmed for release.
The show was filmed by Digital Theatre at the Manchester Palace Theatre and was later screened to cinemas in 2018.
The show is now available to stream as part of the BroadwayHD catalog and via Amazon.
