“FABULOUS FANNY BRICE”
THE GREEN ROOM 42
ON DECEMBER 2 @ 7 PM
“Fabulous Fanny Brice” starring Kimberly Faye Greenberg as legendary singer and actress Fanny Brice, will return to THE GREEN ROOM 42 (570 Tenth Avenue inside YOTEL in New York City) on Thursday, December 2 at 7:00pm. Tickets range from $29 to $69. Tickets purchased include a $10 food and beverage voucher. Tickets and information are available at www.THEGREENROOM42.com
With the up-coming Broadway revival of “Funny Girl” there is renewed interest in the legendary Jewish comedienne, Broadway and Ziegfeld Follies star, recording artist, and film actress extraordinaire. One of the most popular radio stars of all time, Fanny Brice was the voice of “Baby Snooks” on the radio for 25 years and, of course, was the inspiration for “Funny Girl.” “Fabulous Fanny Brice” takes us beyond the ‘funny girl’ on a nostalgic journey throughout her life and infamous relationships, while she entertains with many of her popular hits and songs inspired by her legacy.
The Huffington Post said: “It’s more than a cabaret in that Greenberg gives you a complete story arc to follow, radiating with such warm, homey intimacy that even newcomers to Brice’s canon will leave feeling like experts. In fact, until true time travel becomes possible, Kimberly’s act is the closest modern audiences will ever come to seeing Fanny in person. Kimberly Faye Greenberg brings Fanny Brice to Fabulous Life!”
“Fabulous Fanny Brice” has been touring in theatres and venues across the U.S. for the past 9 years and live-streamed during the pandemic on the STELLAR platform where it was named ‘Best To Stream’ by Time Out NY, American Theatre Magazine and more. In July The Green Room 42 presented FABULOUS FANNY’s first live, in-person performance since the pandemic began.
The creative team includes director Brian Childers (Danny & Sylvia), choreographer Justin Boccitto (Dance/Speak: The Life of Agnes De Mille), musical director Jeff Biering (Danny & Sylvia, Naked Boys Singing) with piano accompaniment by Seth Bisen-Hersh (Love Quirks), costume design by Ryan Mattheiu Smith (Adventures of Sweet Yellow), creative consultant, Kimberly Rehfuss (Broadway’s Taboo); management by The Bohemia Group; and, booking agent, KMEntertainment.
