Fanny Brice was a unique American performer, and undeniably a great one. She conquered burlesque, vaudeville, the Ziegfeld Follies, radio and films, introduced hit songs that are still cabaret classics today, and excelled at sketch comedy and dancing. Yet because her movie appearances were few, the public's memory of Fanny is fading.
One Night with Fanny Brice by Chip Deffaa brings Fanny back to life! Mysteriously returned to the stage for "one night" in front of a curious audience, Fanny tells her story with colorful anecdotes - all true! - and best of all, Fanny's greatest song hits, which just happen to be some of the best and most beloved melodies from the years between the World Wars, including "I'm Always Chasing Rainbows," "Won't You Come Home, Bill Bailey?", "Will You Love Me In December As You Do In May?", "Be My Little Baby Bumble Bee," "Rose Of Washington Square," "You Made Me Love You," "Second Hand Rose," "A Pretty Girl Is Like A Melody," "After You've Gone," and her calling card, "My Man."
