FUNNY GIRL

The Palace theatre, Manchester, 17th August 2017

I can't say that this is my favourite musical, as it hard to separate it from Streisand's hugely mannered performance, but then seeing Fanny Brice in the film of the Ziegfeld Follies, she is certainly a mannered and probably very annoying performer. A little of her kookie schtick goes a long way. But this was an economically staged fluid production built around Sheridan smith who certainly gave 150% in every scene. To me, this is Gypsy's poor relation - Gypsy did the tough showbiz life so much better.. But another one to tick off the list. I did enjoy it though.
