Barbra Steisand is back and she's better than ever as the exuberant Fanny Brice in Funny Lady, sequel to acclaimed Academy Award® winner, (Barbra Streisand as 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!

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Funny Lady is theatrical-style musical with lots of singing and dancing, a somewhat grown-up love story that includes infidelity, and a very glamourous look at Depression era show business. The women wear flashy clothes: showgirls in revealing, outrageous costumes; Streisand as Fanny Brice wears plunging necklines and shows lots of leg. Almost everyone smokes almost all of the time as was common during the 1930s. There is some social drinking, but no drunkenness. Occasional swearing throughout: "Goddamn," "bastard," "screw," and "ass" are heard numerous times, plus some insults, both English and Yiddish.
