‘Natasha J Barnes is a sensation in her own right’ ★★★★★ The Daily Telegraph
Hot on the heels of a record breaking, critically acclaimed West End run this ‘utterly irresistible’ (The Sunday Times) new production of Funny Girl stars West End leading lady Natasha J Barnes as Fanny Brice. Following runs at the Menier and in the West End, Darius Campbell reprises his role as Nick Arnstein.
Funny Girl brought global fame to Barbra Streisand 50 years ago, boasting some of the most iconic songs in film and theatre history, including People and Don’t Rain On My Parade. Half a century later, this ‘exhilarating embrace of a production’ (The Independent) comes to Aberdeen after wowing critics and audiences alike in London’s West End. This iconic musical tells the story of Fanny Brice, whose vocal talents and comedic ability see her rise from Brooklyn music hall singer to Broadway star.
