Nathan Bottorff: Why not have her play Fanny Brice on Broadway? She would breathe new life into a Funny Girl revival!
Hunter K. Taylor: I would love to see her as Fanny Brice in a revival of Funny Girl. Her voice is impeccable, and I really think she is the only fit replacement for Barbara Streisand.
Jeff Gentner: Lea is probably too beautiful to play Fanny Brice, but having always thought that NO ONE could duplicate Barbra Streisand, Lea has shown us that, YES, it could happen!

Funny Girl hasn't returned to Broadway since its original 1964 run. The Jule Styne-Bob Merrill-Isobel Lennart musical made a star out of Barbra Streisand. A 2012 revival of Funny Girl, which was to star Lauren Ambrose, was postponed indefinitely. Check out our list of actresses we'd like to see play Fanny.
