The year is 1956, and the Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein is having its annual quiche breakfast. Daily life is calm and quiet, and excitement is kept to a minimum. However, there's an unexpected item on the agenda this year: the very real threat of atom bombs being dropped on their idyllic town. As the meeting adjourns to the bomb shelter, things take a turn for the worse. Cramped in a small space with the last quiche on Earth and the future uncertain, scandalous secrets come out and tensions -- sexual and otherwise -- rise among the women. Learn More

Fanny Brice's character has a great singing voice and is very humerous. There were some songs that were not in the movie "Funny Girl" with Barbara Steisand. Nicky Arnstein has a good singing voice, but his character could have been a bit stronger.
Funny Girl is a musical with a book by Isobel Lennart, music by Jule Styne, and lyrics by Bob Merrill. The semi-biographical plot is based on the life and career of Broadway, film star and comedienne Fanny Brice and her stormy relationship with entrepreneur and gambler Nicky Arnstein.
The musical was produced by Ray Stark, who was Brice’s son-in-law via his marriage to her daughter Frances, and starred Barbra Streisand. The production was nominated for eight Tony Awards but, facing tough competition from Hello, Dolly!, it failed to win in any categories.
