Sheridan Smith – Funny Girl

Today Tans and I hit the matinée scene at The Savoy Theatre to see “Funny Girl”

the musical made famous by the absolutely fabulous Barbra Streisand.

The story of Fanny Brice and how she rose to stardom.  This version was staring Sheridan Smith in the lead role as Fanny and I couldn’t wait.  I fangirled a little because not only do I love Babs, I also love Funny Girl and Sheridan is one of my faves.  Win/Win/Win.

The show was fabulous, and Sheridan was awesome. The only thing that could have made this day better if is Babs herself showed up.
