Sorry, Lea Michele! No Funny Girl for You

Whether or not she leaves Glee at the end of Season 3, one thing is certain: Lea Michele’s dream role will remain a dream; E! Online reports Lea won’t star in the stage revival of Funny Girl.

Instead, former Six Feet Under star Lauren Ambrose will star as Fanny Brice. Ambrose is a trained opera singer and even has her own band, which is great, but she’s also a bit old for the role. Barbra Streisand was 21 when she starred in the hit show; Ambrose is 33 and a mother.

No word yet from Lea about this latest Funny Girl rumor.
