Beanie's understudy in Funny Girl steals the show!

Now I get Streisand's fear about Lainie Kazan.

Hi Julie

Not Julie. But she does seem to have the voice and personality to fill Streisand's shoes better.

Because I paid to see Funny Girl, not Funny Cow.

Broadway: “Funny Girl” Star Beanie Feldstein Keeps Missing Shows, Giving Understudy Julie Benko a Surprise Showcase

[quote] It pains me to say this. But there’s some trouble at “Funny Girl.” I’m a big fan of Beanie Feldstein, who plays Fanny Brice, the star role created decades ago by Barbra Streisand.

[quote] But at today’s matinee understudy Julie Benko — said to be quite good — will be playing the part. She also filled in this past Wednesday at the matinee, and all of last weekend’s three shows. Benko also subbed for Beanie the first weekend after the show opened. Ms. Feldstein went to a wedding.

[quote] The missed shows are giving Benko a great showcase. But they’re also begging the question of what’s going on at “Funny Girl”?

Beanie is too hard to look at. She doesn't even have a pretty face like people say about fat girls.

Nope.

The same was said about Streisand. And Fanny Brice.

Julie Benko isn't an understudy. She is a standby.

I hate the way these Broadway bloggers write. So cliche and simplistic. This one looks like she was old enough to have been taught English in school, too.

Sounds like All About Eve in the making.

When a girl isn't pretty like a Miss Atlantic City...

Looks like it's happening now.

It's not.

Beanie must be in Broadway hell. Poor thing, we told her.

Yes, r18. That caricature looks like Caroline O'Connor.

Isn't this Beanie person too fat to play Fanny Brice?
