View Comments Hello, gorgeous! The London revival of Funny Girl, which will start previews on November 20 at the Menier Chocolate Factory, is already set to transfer to the West End, where it will begin performances on April 9, 2016 at the Savoy Theatre. Starring two-time Olivier winner Sheridan Smith, the musical, which catapulted Barbra Streisand to stardom on stage and screen, will be directed by Tony winner Michael Mayer and have a revised book by Tony winner Harvey Fierstein. Apparently our Broadway Mayor cut 40 pages from the script on his initial read-through!No word yet on whether the production has any intention of crossing the pond to play New York following the London run, but with Tony winners Mayer and Fierstein on board it looks like a distinct possibility. A Bartlett Sher-helmed revival of the musical—headlined by Lauren Ambrose—was set to play Los Angeles and Broadway in 2012 before being postponed indefinitely. And then there was Lea Michele…The tuner, which first played London in 1966, tracks the rise of Fanny Brice’s career as one of Broadway’s biggest stars by way of the Ziegfeld Follies, as well as her doomed romance with Nicky Arnstein. The score by Jule Styne and Bob Merrill features such iconic show tunes as “People,” “Don’t Rain on My Parade” and “I’m the Greatest Star” and a book by Isobel Lennart.Along with Smith, the cast at the Menier Chocolate Factory will include Maurice Lane, Darius Campbell, Marilyn Cutts, Valda Aviks and Gay Soper. The production will officially open on December 2 and play through March 5, 2016.

BILL NEALA super… Super Bowl Special Review:10 Hold up… Wait a minute… Oh man, get on your feet and jam… We don’t need no music. We got soul… If you ain’t gonna party, take your dead xx home… The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire…We don’t need no water let the xx burn… Awwww Sooki Sooki now!! Yep, all of them. You can use all them good old par-tay shout outs and it won’t come close to what Beyonce did… Are–You–Kiddin–Me? Did you see her? Did you see them? Did you see her?? There will be an emergency meeting called with the “Top Ten Committee” cause somebody’s “body” has got to go! Ms. Beyonce has just moved into the No. 1 spot. Sorry Halle and J-Lo. Step it down one. By the way, she gets 4 stars—4 basketballs—hell—4 cucumbers, I don’t care… it’s over!!!:09 You can’t discount the emotional ride. Just ask Hines Ward how bad they wanted to win for Jerome Bettis. The Ravens rode the Ray Lewis emotional horse all the way to the Super Bowl title. Well played Ray, well played. Deer antler juice and all!:08 Did ya’ll see Beyonce?!? Oh my bad. Back to the game.:07 Don’t get me wrong. Emotion is good and talent is essential, but it sure doesn’t hurt to have a no-call when Jimmy Smith assaulted Michael Crabtree in the end zone. That was a flag, no doubt about it. C’mon ref!:06 Joe Flacco named MVP… I am ok with it, but a lot can be said for Jacoby Jones’ more than 300 collective yards, including the 108 yard kick-off return, longest in Super Bowl history.:05 The night the lights went out in New Orleans. Call it a desperate attempt by the 49ers to slow the Ravens machine down. Call it bad luck in the bayou, but if you ask me, that was Miss Rudolph putting a “root” on somebody and the stadium just got in the way.
