Update, Friday, August 19 at 9: 30 pm: And here she actually is. New, non-Glee footage of Lea Michele in the role of Fanny Brice is here, once more confirming that she actually is the Funny Girl now. In the 30-second first look video, Michele sings Im the best Star over black-and-white clips from rehearsal. She is apparently generally getting combined with the cast and crew this time around, despite her alleged history of tormenting previous co-stars. Michele is scheduled to officially replace Beanie Feldstein and commence performing at the August Wilson Theatre on September 6. Shell just miss her former Glee co-star Jane Lynch, who exits the production on September 4. Needless to say, Lynch could still elect to arrive to a show. Maybe thats how Sue Cs it from the audience.
Original story published July 11 follows.
Maybe THE TRICK works in the end. After years of publicly auditioning for the role of Fanny Brice on Glee and in true to life, Lea Michele has been cast in the starring role in Broadways Funny Girl revival. Michele begins performances on September 6, replacing Beanie Feldstein, who opened the revival and is slipping out sooner than expected, on July 31. In the interim, Feldsteins current understudy, Julie Benko, will undoubtedly be playing the role from July 31 through September 4. Jane Lynch, who’ll be with the production through September 4, will undoubtedly be replaced by Tovah Feldshuh beginning September 6. The casting marks Lea Micheles go back to Broadway after leaving Spring Awakening in the spring of 2008, and she spent her time on television allegedly tormenting her co-stars. Since shes replacing Feldstein in the role, Michele isn’t up for a Tony Award, but that is big enough news that she’ll probably be reviewed once more. Hopefully she can surpass the rave she received on Glee.
