    Lea Michele Finally Responded To The News Of Beanie Feldstein Being Cast In "Funny Girl"

    And the jokes continue.

    As you all know, Beanie Feldstein was cast in the lead role of the upcoming Broadway revival of Funny Girl.

    Beanie celebrated the good news on her Instagram, writing, "I went to my third birthday party dressed as Fanny Brice, so sometimes dreams actually come true."

    Naturally, the comments section was filled with congratulations from celebs and fellow costars like Billie Lourd, Ali Wong, Maude Apatow, Nicola Coughlan, D'Arcy Carden, and Josh Gad.

    Another person who commented their congrats? None other than Lea Michele, who wrote, "Yes! YOU are the greatest star! This is going to be epic!"

    So, for those of you unfamiliar with the situation...let me explain: When the news first broke, Lea began trending alongside the announcement. Not only was Funny Girl integral to Lea's character on Glee, but the actor also has real-life ties to the musical, previously stating that it would be an "honor" to play the part.
