Funny Girl is a successful stage and film musical that features a score by Jule Styne and Bob Merrill, along with a book by Isolbel Lennart.

The musical is semi-autobiographical and is based on the life and career of Fanny Brice, the Broadway star and personality. Her stormy relationship with Nicky Arnstein is played out through a flashback, which incorporates her rise to fame.

Funny Girl opened at Broadway's Winter Garden Theatre on March 26, 1964 and closed more than three years later after 1348 performances.  Nominated for eight Tony Awards, the show made Barbra Streisand a star.

Streisand went on to immortalize her role as Fanny Brice in the 1968 film adaptation of the stage play which earned eight Oscar nominations including a Best Actress win for Streisand.

Songs include People, Don't Rain on My Parade, You Are Woman I am Man, The Music That Makes Me Dance, and more.
