Beanie Feldstein Dishes On Her 'Funny Girl' Role During Variety's Legit Event

Beanie Feldstein uses her hands while speaking onstage at Variety’s LEGIT!: Return to Broadway event held at Second on Wednesday (October 12) in New York City.

The event, which also featured the likes of Andrew Lloyd Webber, Ron Cephas Jones, Michael Urie, and Sharon D. Clarke, celebrated the return of Broadway theatre after over a year of closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Beanie spoke about her upcoming role in Funny Girl, and shared the advice her former Hello Dolly! director Jerry Zaks imparted to her while there.

“Jerry said to me back over there, ‘It’s good to be nervous, Beanie-leh. It keeps you good’,” she said. “I’m like, ‘You’re right Jerry! It’s good to be nervous.”

She added about her role, “My job is to play Fanny Brice. It all comes back to Fanny herself, and that’s what I have to focus on.”

Beanie also has another project coming out. Check it out here!
