Beanie Feldstein to Star in 'Funny Girl' on Broadway as Fanny Brice!

Golden Globe nominee Beanie Feldstein is set to star in the iconic role of Fanny Brice in Funny Girl on Broadway!

The musical will be directed by Michael Mayer and will begin performances in the Spring of 2022. The musical originally launched Barbra Streisand‘s career and features songs like “Don’t Rain on My Parade,” “People,” and “My Man.”

“The first time I played Fanny Brice was at my third birthday party, in a head-to-toe leopard print outfit my mom made for me. So, it’s safe to say that stepping into this iconic role, on Broadway and not in my family’s backyard, is truly my lifelong dream come true. I am immensely grateful to be able to do so alongside such a remarkable creative team, and cannot wait for audiences to get back in theaters again!,” Beanie said in a statement.

The full creative team, further casting, production dates, theatre and onsale plans will be announced shortly.
