I CANNOT WAIT for the revival of Funny Girl that's scheduled to hit Broadway in 2012. Funny Girl was the first musical I fell head over heels with as a girl (followed shortly by Oklahoma). These songs NEVER grow old. They are perfect, and Babs is perfect.
I do hope they find new talent for the lead, though. These rumors about Lea Michele in the role of Fanny Brice are a little disappointing. I'm sure she'd be fine but I feel like her version of Don't Rain on My Parade couldn't be more Auto-tuned! Hopefully they find someone more in the vein of BS. Either way I'm seeing it and I'm certain it will be perfectly amazing.
