6 Swoon-Worthy Love Songs Sung By Funny Girl's "Nicky Arnstein, Nicky Arnstein!" Ramin Karimloo
'Cause his is the only music that makes us dance!
Big Broadway news broke this morning announcing that appearing opposite Beanie Feldstein in this spring's first Broadway revival of Funny Girl will be Ramin Karimloo as Nick Arnstein. He joins newly announced cast members Emmy winner Jane Lynch as Fanny's mother Mrs. Rosie Brice and A Soldier's Play's Jared Grimes as Fanny's pal Eddie Ryan.
"Nicky Arnstein, Nicky Arnstein..." Sydney Chaplin originated the role of Nick Arnstein opposite Barbra Streisand in the original 1964 production. Omar Sharif brought Nick Arnstein to the big screen in the 1968 film with Barbra preserving her Tony Award nominated Broadway performance (which led to her Academy Award win for Fanny Brice).
