COMPOSERS:
JULE STYNE

Stars Barbra Steisand and Omar Sharif. In this bittersweet, classic musical drama, the vibrant and beautiful young Fanny Brice (Barbra Streisand) starts out as a bit player on the New York City vaudeville stage, but works her way up to stardom on Broadway. Valued for her vocal and comedic talents by the renowned theater impresario Florenz Ziegfeld (Walter Pidgeon), Fanny thrives, but her relationship with her suave, imprisoned businessman husband, Nick Arnstein (Omar Sharif), is another story.

“Barbra Streisand in her Hollywood debut makes a marked impact.”
– Variety

“Now more than ever, the time may be right for ‘People Who Need People,’ one of the many fine tunes that punctuate Funny Girl.
– Austin Chronicle

“Songs like “Don’t Rain on My Parade” live triumphantly on.”
– Guardian

“The fun is there whenever Streisand is, and that could be reason enough for reacquainting yourself with Funny Girl.
– Toronto Star

COMPOSERS:
STEPHEN SONDHEIM

As the result of the curse of a once-beautiful witch (Meryl Streep), a baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt) are childless. Three days before the rise of a blue moon, they venture into the forest to find the ingredients that will reverse the spell and restore the witch’s beauty: a milk-white cow, hair as yellow as corn, a blood-red cape, and a slipper of gold. During their journey, they meet Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Jack, each one on a quest to fulfill a wish.

“Wonderfully cast, beautiful scenes, detailed costumes, breathtaking singing, and a sprinkle of Disney magic.”
– Raising Whasians

– Austin Chronicle

“”Into the Woods,” a movie adaptation of the Broadway musical, is one of this year’s best films.”
