Buffalo's own Michele Ragusa stars in Funny Girl Concert

By Eileen Buckley


Buffalo, NY – The Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra's Pop series continues Saturday night with Funny Girl in Concert featuring Buffalo's own Michele Ragusa as Fanny Brice. It is a role popularized by Barbra Streisand.

Ragusa is known for her powerful vocals and has appeared in a number of well-known Broadway shows. But what many don't know is Michele grew up in North Buffalo, and is a graduate of Holy Angels Academy. That's where WBFO's Eileen Buckley caught up with Ragusa where she talked to students about her entertainment career.
