Enjoy classic show tunes and good old-fashioned fun as we travel through time with Fanny Brice, 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 was the voice of “Baby Snooks” on the radio for 25 years and even better known as the inspiration for “Funny Girl.” Fanny takes us 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 8 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.
