Beanie Feldstein Announces Surprise Early Departure From Broadway’s ‘Funny Girl’

Beanie Feldstein said today that she would leave the title role of the Broadway production of Funny Girl 

 even sooner than previously anticipated: Her final performance will be on July 31.

Feldstein said tonight on Instagram, "Playing Fanny Brice on Broadway has been a longstanding ambition of mine

and doing so over the last few months has been a wonderful delight and real honour.

 I made the incredibly painful choice to leave the programme earlier 

 than expected after the producers chose to take it in a different path.

I want to thank each and every one of you who came to the August Wilson for your love

and support that you have shown me and our incredible cast 

and crew because I will never forget this experience. 

I hope you continue to hang around on Henry Street when I go on July 31st 

 because the folks I have had the wonderful pleasure of bringing Funny Girl to life with every night,

 both on and off the stage, are all amazingly brilliant and exceptional people.
