Funny Girl with Sheridan Smith

Based on the life story of Fanny Brice (actually Fania Borach born in 1891) a music hall star who went on to star in the world famous Ziegfeld Follies revues. She met and married inveterate gambler Nicky Arnstein and had two children.

The story was turned in to a most successful musical film in the late 1960’s starring Barbra Streisand and Omar Sherif.

This version is both excellent and dynamic, the full cast are great as is the orchestra.
However, casting Sheridan Smith in the part of Fanny Brice was a master stroke, she plays the part with wit, verve and pathos, her singing though is absolutely brilliant throughout.
She draws you in to her character with her enthusiasm and energy.
So “move over Barbra and let Sheridan take over”.

The acoustics of the MK Theatre were as usual very good, the stage set was flexible and conveyed the scene being portrayed.
The costumes beautifully portray the fashions of the period.
All in all a most enjoyable evening at the theatre.

Funny Girl runs from 28th Feb to 4th March at Milton Keynes Theatre. For tickets, visit:

  1. Dr Williams medicine was extremely helpful to my daughter. I have had a daughter with fibromyalgia for 21 years now , and my doctor have prescribe me with different kinds of western drugs without no improvement on my daughter symptoms . I am so glad I have found Dr Williams medicine (as I was surfing the net for a solution and saw a recommendation for it on a women's health forum early this year). I have felt so empowered by the knowledge you have given me and I quickly self diagnosed the individual causes of my daughter fibromyalgia and armed with his clear instructions, I was finally able to beat this monster, in less than 4 weeks of using dr Williams medication on my daughter. she went for checkup and it was clear that my daughter fibromyalgia were gone,you can also email him on for help.

    Thank you, thank you , thank you. Dr Williams "
