    Synopsis: 

    One Night With Fanny Brice chronicles Fanny Brice's rise from rather humble origins to become an internationally popular entertainer and the highest paid American singing comedienne - a Ziegfeld star equally effective whether putting over a broadly comic number or a dramatic torch song. A strong, intuitive, street-smart woman, Fanny Brice's life story provided the inspiration for the musical Funny Girl. One Night With Fanny Brice features many of the songs Brice made famous, including "Rose of Washington Square," "My Man" and "Second Hand Rose."
