Mary D. Fisher Theatre joins theaters around the world for special one night event
Sedona AZ (October 16, 2018) – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to join theaters around the world to present a one-night only world premiere of “Funny Girl: The Musical” on Wednesday, Oct. 24 at 3 p.m. at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
Following its record-breaking, sell-out run in London’s West End and national tour, the critically-acclaimed musical “Funny Girl” comes to Sedona, 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.
Praised by critics as having “irresistible charm, wit and warmth” (Metro), and hailing Sheridan Smith as “the greatest star by far” (The Daily Telegraph), “Funny Girl” features a host of iconic and timeless musical numbers including “People,” “I’m the Greatest Star,” and “Don’t Rain On My Parade.”
Hilarious, glorious, and exhilarating, don’t miss this sensational production at this special world-wide event right here in Sedona!
