“The jewel at the heart of this production is Smith. Brilliantly costumed by Matthew Wright in the garish outfits of a woman who loves clothes (the fancier the better) and doesn’t give a hoot that she hasn’t a scrap of taste, she belts her way through triumph and disaster with such full-hearted charm that you can only surrender to it.”

“Smith may be small in stature but her presence on stage is enormous. Every cast member in Funny Girl is a star in orbit around Smith’s intense glowing sun. In I’m The Greatest Star, Brice quips that she has thirty-six expressions. I’d go so far as to say Smith has a good deal more.”

What’s On Stage

Whats-on-stage-4-stars“Ultimately, Funny Girl is not about telling the story of Fanny Brice – which doesn’t really have enough drama to stand alone. Instead it’s about getting Fanny back onstage so she can win the world over once more. And Smith nails that entirely. She will make you laugh, cry and want to see the show again.”

“Michael Mayer’s loving production ensures it is not merely a solo vehicle for Smith, but also a fully integrated show that has some great chorus numbers (expanded since the Menier), an outstanding Darius Campbell bringing texture and vocal resonance to the somewhat underwritten role of her husband Nicky, and a touching, terrific trio of Marilyn Cutts, Valda Avis and Gay Soper as Fanny’s mother and neighbours.”

“The good news for this West End transfer of the instant sell-out Menier Chocolate Factory production is that Sheridan Smith triumphantly reinvents Brice for a new generation of musical theatre lovers, conveying with skill and heart this entertainer’s emotive blend of professional success and personal vulnerability.”
