Barbra Streisand is back and she's better than ever as the exuberant fanny Brice in Funny Lady, sequel to acclaimed Academy AwardÂ® winner, (Barbara Streisand, Best Actress, 1968) Funny Girl.
This lively, lavish musical opens a new chapter in fanny's career and love life. Now divorced from wealthy Nick Arnstein (Omar Sharif), she teams up with songwriter Billy Rose (James Caan), a brash and unkempt showman who is bursting with enthusiasm and theatrical ambitions. They make an unusual couple - the polished performer and the upstart producer - but a friendship blossoms into love. Funny Lady is the poignant story of their show business magic, their unbridled temperaments and their touching, bittersweet romance. Featuring dazzling production numbers, elegant costuming by Bob Mackie and an electric cast, Streisand is a Funny Lady you'll never forget!
