Watch Now: Funny Girl‘s Beanie Feldstein & Jane Lynch Talk Bette Midler

In celebration of International Women’s Day, Funny Girl kicked off a new series aptly titled “Funny Women.” In the first episode, Beanie Feldstein and Jane Lynch, stars of the upcoming revival, discussed the iconic Bette Midler, Feldstein’s former Hello, Dolly! co-star.

In addition to Feldstein as Fanny Brice and Lynch as Mrs. Rosie Brice, Funny Girl will star Tony and Olivier Award nominee Ramin Karimloo as Nick Arnstein, Jeff Award winner Jared Grimes as Eddie Ryan, Peter Francis James as Florenz Ziegfeld, Ephie Aardema as Emma/Mrs. Nadler, Debra Cardona as Mrs. Meeker, Toni DiBuono as Mrs. Strakosh, Martin Moran as Tom Keeney, and Julie Benko as the Fanny Brice Standby.

Funny Girl begins performances Saturday, March 26, 2022, and officially opens on Sunday, April 24, 2022, at Broadway’s August Wilson Theatre. Tickets are now on sale.

Tony Award winner Michael Mayer will direct the revival, featuring the classic score by Tony, Grammy and Academy Award winner Jule Styne and lyrics by Tony Award nominee and Grammy Award winner Bob Merrill, (comprising additional songs from Styne & Merrill). The original book by Isobel Lennart, from an original story by Miss Lennart, is revised by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein.

The revival will feature choreography by Ellenore Scott, tap choreography by Ayodele Casel, scenic design by Tony Award winner David Zinn, costume design by Tony Award winner Susan Hilferty, lighting design by Tony Award winner Kevin Adams, sound design by Tony Award winner Brian Ronan, hair & wig design by Campbell Young Associates, orchestrations by Chris Walker, music direction and supervision by Emmy Award winner Michael Rafter, casting by Jim Carnahan, CSA and Jason Thinger, orchestrations by Chris Walker, dance, vocal and incidental music arrangements by Alan Williams, and additional arrangements by David Dabbon and Carmel Dean.

This bittersweet comedy is the story of the indomitable Fanny Brice, a girl from the Lower East Side who dreamed of a life on the stage. Everyone told her she’d never be a star, but then something funny happened—she became one of the most beloved performers in history, shining brighter than the brightest lights of Broadway.
