    "Glitz, glitter and glamour: Staged by the musical wizards at the Village Theatre, Funny Girl's got it all. It's a gorgeous production of beautiful music, lavish sets, excellent dancing and a liberal sprinkling of comedy that any kid age 8 or up should enjoy." Parent Map

    This “Funny Girl” Almost Makes You Forget Streisand Seattle PI

    "On the Aisle: ‘Funny Girl’: A glorious celebration Daily Record

    "The fleet-footed John David Scott is a standout as Eddie, the puppyish friend and man-in-waiting to Brice. His tap-dance routine early in the show is nimble and engaging; it leaves you wanting more." Seattle Weekly

    "As usual at Village, the show looks swell. The faux-Ziegfeld number, with showgirls descending a white stairway to model tall feathery headdresses (think Cher) pours on the razzle-dazzle with glitzy costumes (by Karen Ann Ledger) and lighting (by Aaron Copp). Bill Forrester’s painted scenic backdrops play effectively with old-timey-theater ambience." The Seattle Times

    "It’s a “big” show with a large ensemble cast filling the stage, enchanting bits of choreography by Kristin Holland, and a lot of brass in the orchestra (music directed by Tim Symons and Bruce Monroe)." Miryam's Theater Musings

    Village Theatre digs deep into its bag of tricks for its latest musical. The Issaquah Press

    "...a wide array of attractive sets from scenic designer Bill Forrester, crisp choreography from Kristin Holland, and on-point musical direction from Tim Symons and Bruce Monroe" BC Blog Critics

    "Funny Girl" is a fun night out to visit a magical time and place in theater history with a remarkable girl as guide and companion. The Edge

    "If you’re looking for a really big, flashy, brilliantly staged musical celebrating the Golden Days of Ziegfeld and the legendary star Fanny Brice, and if you’re hoping to find a new star big enough and brilliant enough to steal the spotlight from a dazzling ensemble, and if you really love song and dance, some bittersweet romance and wonderful melodies, well this Village Theatre production of “Funny Girl” delivers on every single item." Seattle Actor

    "Village has taken this iconic and seldom attempted classic and served it up with all the class and fun it deserves. Davis... takes on the timing of Brice like a pro and has an equally powerful and crystal clear voice to back it all up. " Broadway World

    ‘Funny Girl’ returns to Village Theatre 20 years later The Issaquah Press
