A biographical musical about Fanny Brice, the rise of her career, and her tumultuous relationship with Nick Arnstein, in the beginning, Fanny and a worker, Emma discuss her early appearance at the theater.

In a flashback to Fanny's beginning days, Fanny and her mother Rose, and Rose's friends, such as Mrs. Strakosh,sing about Fanny's looks being unconventional, but her having exceptional talent.

After her debut, Fanny and her mother discuss her returning home after and Rose tells her not to hurry at all.

There are plenty of other conversations that pass the Bechdel test, including other conversations with Fanny and Emma, and Rose and her other friends.
