The protagonist, Fanny Brice, is brilliant even though she is not meant to be the attractive type, at least not according to her family and friends. She is gifted with a beautiful singing voice, a quick wit, great personality, and eyes that can penetrate your very soul. She's definitely out of the ordinary.
Her tale starts as a young, brave actor on the Lower East Side of New York City, stumbling through the worlds of burlesque and vaudeville. Fanny is a stunning singer with a clever mind who has faith in herself despite the doubts of her loved ones.
As the story unfolds, Fanny is totally taken with Nick Arnstein, a debonair gambler with a tender side. Nick, however, seems unable to get that Fanny has fallen for him, as evidenced by his frequent absences that she assumes to be "business trips."
Eventually, during a passionate encounter in Baltimore, Nick and Fanny tell each other their feelings for one another, and Fanny bravely decides to travel across the ocean to be with Nick. Due to a windfall won by Nick, the two decide to get married. Fanny's husband is starting to get increasingly unhappy of her success in the entertainment industry, and so she must now, especially with a favorable career path as a performer choose between her work and their relationship.
With such an incredible plot, you really should not pass up this fantastic chance to watch this one as tickets are still available now, but they won't be for long.
