Beanie Feldstein Announces Final Show in 'Funny Girl' on Broadway - Read Her Statement

Beanie Feldstein has announced that she will be leaving the Broadway production of Funny Girl.

The 28-year-old actress is currently playing the iconic role of Fanny Brice in the first-ever Broadway revival of the classic musical.

The production didn’t get the best reviews and was almost entirely shut out at the Tony Awards, which took place this past weekend.

Jane Lynch, who is playing Fanny’s mother in the show, will leave the production on the same date while Ramin Karimloo and Tony-nominated star Jared Grimes will continue in their roles of Nick Arnstein and Eddie Ryan.

Sutton Foster Wins Special Award for Best Performance of the Entire Broadway Season!

Sutton Foster just won one of the biggest honors in the Broadway community!

The two-time Tony-winning actress was presented the Distinguished Performance Award during the 2022 Drama League Awards on Friday afternoon (May 20) in New York City.

The annual awards show honors just one acting performance for the entire theatrical season, encompassing all of Broadway and off-Broadway.

Sutton won the award for her performance in The Music Man and her co-star Hugh Jackman received the Distinguished Achievement in Musical Theatre award. Actors can only win the Distinguished Performance Award once in their career and Hugh won almost 20 years ago for starring in Broadway’s The Boy From Oz, so he was ineligible for The Music Man.

Here's Your First Look at Beanie Feldstein in 'Funny Girl' - Production Photos Revealed!

Beanie Feldstein as back on Broadway in the first revival of Funny Girl and the production photos have been revealed!

The 28-year-old actress is playing Fanny Brice in the star-studded production, which also features Tony nominee Ramin Karimloo as Nick Arnstein, Emmy winner Jane Lynch as Mrs. Rose Brice, and Jeff Award winner Jared Grimes as Eddie Ryan.

Funny Girl is the story of the indomitable Fanny Brice, a girl from the Lower East Side who dreamed of a life on the stage. Everyone told her she’d never be a star, but then something funny happened—she became one of the most beloved performers in history, shining brighter than the brightest lights of Broadway.

The production is currently in previews ahead of an official opening night on April 24.

Funny Girl, which launched the career of Barbra Streisand, features the iconic songs “Don’t Rain on My Parade, “I’m the Greatest Star,” and “People.”

16 members of the cast gathered on Zoom to talk about their favorite memories of Naya on the 10-year anniversary of her character Santana Lopez coming out as a lesbian on network TV. The reunion was part of the 2021 GLAAD Media Awards, which aired on Thursday (April 8).

Demi Lovato, who played Santana’s girlfriend Dani on Glee, opened the tribute. She said, “I will always cherish the chance I got to play Naya‘s girlfriend, Dani, on Glee. The character Naya played, Santana Lopez, was groundbreaking for closeted queer girls, like I was at the time. Her ambition and accomplishments inspired Latina women all over the world.”

The cast members who then participated in the reunion included Jacob Artist, Chris Colfer, Darren Criss, Jessalyn Gilsig, Dot-Marie Jones, Vanessa Lengies, Jane Lynch, Kevin McHale, Heather Morris, Matthew Morrison, Alex Newell, Lauren Potter, Amber Riley, Harry Shum Jr., Becca Tobin, and Jenna Ushkowitz.
