One Night with Fannie Brice is a one-woman show about the life of the famed comical singer of vaudeville and radio. Brice was the highest paid American singing comedienne of her day, made famous when she joined Zeigfeld’s Follies. This production is a musical revue, where you will experience the life and times of Fanny Brice through the songs that made her famous, including numbers such as “Second Hand Rose,” “Won’t You Come Home Bill Bailey,” and, of course, “My Man.”
