Lynch, star of Glee and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel[1], grew up in Illinois listening to the Broadway cast album of Funny Girl[2]. Now, the actress is starring as Fanny Brice’s mother in a revival of the show opposite Beanie Feldstein. “I couldn’t be more thrilled. It’s such a wonderful American musical,” says Lynch. The film version, starring Barbra Streisand[3], “always doubles me over with laughter and breaks my heart wide open.” The show marks Lynch’s return to Broadway after she appeared as Miss Hannigan in an Annie revival a decade ago. “You put your absolute whole self into it,” she says. “[Broadway] feels more like home to me than any other place in the world.”
