Brice, Cantor & Jolson
Manalapan | Website
This event occurred in the past.
From a Lower East Side music hall to the Ziegfeld Follies, Fanny Brice was everyone's favorite Funny Girl. The comedienne's rise to fame was laced with romantic heartbreak and inspired the hit musicals “Funny Girl” and “Funny Lady.” Vaudevillian and Renaissance man Eddie Cantor was a comedian, dancer, singer, actor, songwriter and philanthropist. Singer/actor Al Jolson, the original “Jazz Singer,” not only inspired the birth of talking pictures, he popularized the now-standard “Swanee.” This musical revue pays tribute to the trio with such classic tunes as “My Man,” “Second Hand Rose,” “If You Knew Susie,” “Makin’ Whoopee,” “Yes Sir, That’s My Baby,” “Baby Face,” “Waiting for the Robert E. Lee,” “California Here I Come” and “You Made Me Love You.” The show opens Sept. 18 and runs through Sept. 29.
