Hey, did you know that Lea Michele wants to play Fanny Brice in Funny Girl on Broadway? Yeah, we thought so.
The Glee star has definitely been vocal about her love of Barbra Streisand and the role that made her a star. She’s sang the show’s songs on the Tony Awards, on her hit Fox show and, well, anywhere she can. And her Glee character, Rachel Berry, is now actually STARRING as Fanny Bruce in Funny Girl on TV. So what is all of this building up to? You guessed it: Lea Michele is Fanny Bruce in Funny Girl on BROADWAY!
The TV starlet told Broadway BFF Jonathan Groff in the new issue of Teen Vogue that Glee creator Ryan Murphy has now officially obtained the rights to the show and that “we’re hoping to do that at some point.”
OK, so it’s not exactly happening tomorrow. But it looks like it’s happening! Congrats, Lea! Dreams do come true.
