Lea Michele gets multiple standing ovations in ‘Funny Girl’ debut
Feldshuh plays Mrs. Brice in the production.
In the audience was Michele’s former “Spring Awakening” co-star Jonathan Groff, “Glee creator” Ryan Murphy and actor Zachary Quinto.
Michele would often reference “Funny Girl” during her time on “Glee,” with her character Rachel Berry belting out “Don’t Rain on My Parade,” “I’m the Greatest Star” and “People” from the musical.
Feldstein left “Funny Girl” two months early after it was announced she was being replaced by Michele, saying she was following the decision to “take the show in a different direction.”
