10 Dec Funny Girl Review
By David Marlowe, Marlowe’s Musings
A few months ago a dear friend who has produced countless musicals told me it was utterly ridiculous to think that anyone could successfully produce “Funny Girl.” He had tried and failed. His contention was that Barbra Streisand had made such an indelible mark with her characterization of Fanny Brice that no actress could ever approach the role and no director could ever create a successful production.
Director Robert Michael Sanders’ casting of Lauren Cora Marsh proves him wrong!
