This is going to be interesting.
Emmy winner Jane Lynch can do anything, she’s a comic genius. Now we’ll find out if she can sing. Lynch has been announced to play Fanny Brice’s mother in the first ever Broadway revival of “Funny Girl.”
Lynch will play Fanny’s mother. Of course, she and star Beanie Feldstein look nothing alike. But who knows? On stage, everything is possible.
Ramin Karimloo, who’s made a good career out of “Les Miserables” and other musicals here and in the West End, will play Nicky Arnstein, who courts Fanny and produces her shows. Jared Grimes will play her stage agent, Eddie Ryan.
“Funny Girl” is coming to Broadway for previews on Saturday, March 26, 2022, and officially opens on Sunday, April 24, 2022 at Broadway’s August Wilson Theatre. Hot ticket? Absolutely!
