While we were originally surprised by the choice of Lauren Ambrose, who had no previous Broadway musical experience, for the now-canceled Funny Girl revival, we were curious to see what this gifted actress — a delight on screen ("Six Feet Under") and on stage (Awake and Sing!) — would bring to the role. We still are interested in seeing her take on the legendary vaudeville comedienne.
