Beanie Feldstein & Jane Lynch Leaving Broadway’s ‘Funny Girl’

Producers for Broadway’s current Funny Girl revival announced Wednesday that stars Beanie Feldstein and Jane Lynch will soon be exiting.

In a statement posted to social media, the show’s team shared that the two performers are set to exit the production Sept. 25. This follows Feldstein having announced June 6 that she would be missing dates due to testing positive for COVID-19.

“Beanie returns tomorrow!” the show’s official Twitter account posted Wednesday. “14 weeks left to see Beanie Feldstein & Jane Lynch now through September 25th. Stay tuned for additional casting news to join Ramin Karimloo & Jared Grimes and the company of Funny Girl.”

The show, which opened April 24, was nominated for a single Tony Award at the recent 2022 ceremony, for featured actor Jared Grimes, which the show did not win.

In the Broadway revival, Feldstein plays Fanny Brice — the role originated by Barbra Streisand on Broadway in 1964 and in the 1968 film — while Lynch plays her mom, Mrs. Brice.
