We've got 36 expressions…and all of them are ECSTATIC!

It is with great pleasure and a deep sense of pure joy that we announce to you that Funny Girl is being revived for Broadway.

Not maybe, not someday…it's happening now!

Sources reveal that Jule Styne and Bob Merrill's beautifully created musical about the incomparable Fanny Brice, is slated to make its first official revival debut in 2012 in L.A. before making its way back to the Great White Way!

Tony Award winner Bartlett Sher will direct and from Jan. 15-Feb. 26, 2012, the show will run in previews at the Ahmanson Theatre as part of the Center Theatre Group's 2011-12 season.

The musical will officially open Feb. 1, 2012.

So, here's the million dollar question: Who will be the brave pip with piz-azz, with all the ginger and jazz, who will boldly step into the lead role of the show?

We know you are awfully busy, Lea Michele, but we think the show's calling your name!

    God, please not Lea Michele. she needs to go away for a while. Idina Menzel is way more talented and a far better actress.

    KELLY CLARKSON would be perfect for this. She needs to be on Broadway and her voice is the ONLY one (sorry Gleeks) that can hold up to Barbara's.

    OMG OMG Funny Girl is the absolute best musical EVER! LEA has NOTHING on Babs! and Kelly Clarkson???! Have you SEEN Funny Girl? Kelly Clarkson is NOT Fanny Brice.

    They should pick someone almost completely unheard of. Lea's over-publicized career would destroy the show.
