Bringing a team of uniquely talented people together to write a musical is always a challenge, but sometimes it becomes a truly harrowing ordeal. So it was when Ray Stark tried to recruit a creative team to write a musical about his mother-in-law, Fanny Brice, the legendary Vaudeville star who introduced songs like “My Man” and “Second-Hand Rose.”

No musical has ever seen such a dizzying revolving door of talent. The opening was postponed five times! But when FUNNY GIRL finally did open, it was a smash hit and turned Barbra Streisand into a star overnight! Its score by Jule Styne and Bob Merrill remains a classic, with songs like “Don’t Rain on My Parade,” “I’m the Greatest Star,” “You Are Woman (I Am Man),” “The Music that Makes Me Dance” and the stand-out hit of the show, “People.”
