Relaxed Screening: Funny Girl – The Musical (PG)

Funny Girl

Following its record-breaking, sell-out run in London’s West End and national tour, the critically-acclaimed musical Funny Girl comes to our cinema.

Featuring Sheridan Smith in 'an unforgettable star turn' (The Times), Funny Girl is semi-biographical, based on the life and career of Broadway star, film actress and comedienne Fanny Brice (a role made famous by Barbara Streisand on Broadway and in the 1968 film adaptation), and her stormy relationship with entrepreneur and gambler Nick Arnstein.

Praised by critics as having 'irresistible charm, wit and warmth' (Metro), and hailing Sheridan Smith as 'the greatest star by far' (The Daily Telegraph), Funny Girl features a host of iconic and timeless musical numbers including 'People', 'I’m the Greatest Star', and 'Don’t Rain On My Parade'.

Hilarious, glorious, and ‘exhilarating’ (The Independent), don’t miss this sensational production from the comfort of our cinema.

Approx 160 min

Relaxed Screenings
Relaxed screenings are specially tailored for film fans who may be on the autistic spectrum, have Tourette Syndrome, anxiety, sensory difficulties or other learning disabilities.

The cinema environment is tailored to the needs of the audience by having the lights dimmed, though not off, and the volume levels a little lower than usual. Attendees are free to sit in whichever seat they like and can enter and exit the room at any time, with easy access for any wheelchair users. Staff are trained and ready to assist with any help the audience may need during these trips to the cinema at Barbican.
