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.

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

What about Linda Eder?

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

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.

|by Anonymous||reply 23||07/08/2011|
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.

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!

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

I thought Lauren Ambrose had been cast ?
|by Anonymous||reply 29||08/13/2011|
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.
