| Filed under: Broadway Babies

The show that made Barbra Streisand famous, Funny Girl, is being revived on Broadway.

Bartlet Sher will direct the six week out-of-town tryout in late 2011 in preparation for a quick Broadway transfer later in the season.

Rights owner and producer Bob Boyett said:

"I don't have any other details, or anything on locations…Nothing is really pulled together except Bart Sher. There have been a few Hollywood types who have expressed interest…but we're also open to going with an unknown actress."

So, Lea Michele?!

Can't wait to find out who they cast as the lead!

    Lea Michele? You should be arrested Perez. Those fucking fingers should be cut off on by one with a rusty spoon.

    Lea isn't unknown. You know her, I know her, everyone who watches Glee knows her, and anyone who loves Broadway knows her.

    "Fun Girl" was tailor made for Streisand. Revival can only happen with that level of quality lead. There's nobody around I can think of.

    Lea Michele would be inspired casting. She'd be great.

    I saw Barbra on Broadway way back then.
    She was a wonderful new talent, that doesn't come along that often.
    She's dead to me now.

    How the EFF is Lea suppose to do this when she is contractually obligated to Glee until 2012?

    Does she have the chops? HELL YES. Is she available? Ummm no. Why even bother suggesting it?

    Lea Michele would be great.. but won't be available. Stephanie Block could handle the role

    My sister, Brandi would be a great fit for this role. She appeared in a Tale of Two Cities (Lucie) and Mamma Mia! (Sophie) on Broadway and on the short-lived soap "Passions", as Siren the mermaid. She's got the pipes for it!

    NOOOOOO F>>>>remake no one and I say no one today can play Fanny Brice like Babra! leave the f…play the classic that it is.

    I think Kristin Chenoweth should play the lead, she would be awesome. She has already done a one off special and she was wicked in it.
