Lea Michele Receives Rave Reviews After ‘Funny Girl’ Debut: She’s What The Broadway Show ‘Needed’
“When Lea Michele launches missile-like into ‘Don’t Rain on My Parade,’ she doesn’t just bring down the house.
She brings down the whole darn block,” theater critic Peter Marks wrote for the publication.
An irresistible cocktail mixed with fizz, rocket fuel and pure talent,” he gushed.
Lea is certainly smiling right now.

Although Jesse noted that the show spent decades growing its “long list of misfires” for Fanny, the most recent one, as mentioned above, is Beanie Feldstein.
“Playing Fanny Brice on Broadway has been a lifelong dream of mine, and doing so for the last few months has been a great joy and true honor,” she wrote on Instagram at the time.
Sadly, the plans fell through and a revival was eventually started with Beanie as the lead.
