The Broadway musical that catapulted Barbra Streisand to fame and won her an Oscar for the film adaptation tells the true story of legendary comedian and vaudeville great Fanny Brice. Certain she's destined for stardom, Brice fast-talks her way into show business, and turns her breakthrough role in a Ziegfeld Follies drama into an unexpected laugh riot, launching her career into the stratosphere. But Brice's difficult off-stage relationship with her gambler-husband Nicky Arnstein threatens to bring her crashing back to earth. Jule Styne and Bob Merrill wrote the music and lyrics for this enduring classic, which features great songs like "Don't Rain on My Parade," "People" and "You Are Woman, I Am Man." Learn More

“_Two and a half hours of absolute bliss … The entire cast is nothing less than superb …Tomkins has turned in some wonderful shows in the past but this one, I have to say, is nothing short of … well … BRILLIANTSKI!”—Broadway World20110318
When the Soviets set out to create a Broadway musical, they decide they’ll need to bring in some real New York writers – by force, if necessary. Enter Howard and Murray, two down and out musical theatre writers, who are on the brink of throwing in the towel. Kidnapped, taken to Moscow, and forced to fix the worst musical ever written, these two characters suddenly find themselves working under the gun…literally! With an uproarious and upbeat score, Iron Curtain is a knock ’em down hit with laughs at every corner.
