Shoshanna Bean IS Fanny Brice in Bart Sher''s revival of FUNNY GIRL!

Forget the highly publicized search for an unknown.. it's been cast.%0D Bean played Elphaba in Wicked.

And you know this how?

Please remove all breakables from Lea Michele's dressing room, stat!

Well, actually, they HAVE found a unknown.

by Anonymousreply 306/15/2011

Complete bullshit. Sher is in London directing the opera TWO BOYS this month. No Brice casting or other major decisions for this production have been made in his absence.

Dear Mr. Sher, please, please, please cast Anna Kendrick as Fanny Brice.

I have a special delivery of voodoo dolls for a Ms Barbra Streisand.

Wouldn't be a bad choice actually, although I'm not sure she has the comic chops. But the Anna Kendrick troll might be onto something.

thankless task.

by Anonymousreply 907/07/2011

thanks, r8, for calling me that. Actually, I love it. In fact, I may change my name to Anna Kendrick-Troll.

Ahem.

R11 Barbra didn't win the Tony for FUNNY GIRL. Carol Channing won that year for HELLO, DOLLY!

What about Linda Eder?

by Anonymousreply 1407/07/2011

If they want *true* star power, what about Rebecca Black? (Provided they can meet her asking price, of course.)

by Anonymousreply 1507/07/2011

I think Shoshanna should definitely be in the running - she has the voice and she is kind of a meeskite.%0D %0D Anna Kendrick is not likable.

No, no, Chris Colfer as Fanny in a non-traditional version of FUNNY GIRL. Or better yet, Chris Colfer as Barbra playing Fanny.

Leslie Kritzer as Fanny - over here, hello!

Anika, the Falasha Fanny!

Linds Elder way too good looking and too old for the part.%0D %0D What is a Shoshanna Bean?

by Anonymousreply 2307/08/2011

OP has it correct. Sher's notion is to use Bean's weight as the emotional equivalent for Barbra's awkwardness. And Bean has the vocal chops.

Shoshanna? They couldn't find a Jewish girl?

Saw Leslie Kritzer as Adelaide in Guys and Dolls at Barrington Stage in Pittsfield, MA last night. She gets my vote.

by Anonymousreply 2607/08/2011

Is it really pertinent to cast a Jewish actress? I mean, it's called acting.

I'm Latino and never really got the huff and puff over not hiring a true and honest Latino for a part.

It's all pretend, people!

by Anonymousreply 2707/08/2011

Bean didn't play Elphaba. That was Kristeen Cheneworth, you moron.

by Anonymousreply 2807/08/2011

I thought Lauren Ambrose had been cast ?

by Anonymousreply 2908/13/2011

Yes, Ambrose was cast, proving that people say a lot of things on DL that are not true.

For instance, this:

"Shoshanna? They couldn't find a Jewish girl?"

Shoshanna is the Hebrew name for lily (sometimes used for) rose and the original form of Susanna, who was also an Old Testament figure. Therefore, it is safe to say that most women named Shoshanna are Jewish.

"What is a Shoshanna Bean?"

A Starbucks invention.

Anna Kendrick for Funny Girl.

I want to be the Anna Kendrick troll too. But we need someone energetic with a subscription so they can start Anna Kendrick threads.

by Anonymousreply 3203/05/2013

I would do a great Fanny Whatshername!!!!

by Anonymousreply 3303/05/2013

They should finally give Lainie Kazan her due and cast her.

by Anonymousreply 3403/05/2013

[quote]And Bean has the vocal chops.

But ZERO star quality.

by Anonymousreply 3503/05/2013

Is it too late to change my mind?

by Anonymousreply 3603/05/2013

Sorry, you're an idiot for bumping this dead thread, r32, you cheapskate.

Fine.

You be the Anna Kendrick troll, Moneybags.
