    Just 17 Reactions To The News That Lea Michele Is Replacing Beanie Feldstein In "Funny Girl"

    A mess!

    If you've been online in the past 24 hours, you've seen everywhere that Lea Michele is replacing Beanie Feldstein in the Broadway musical Funny Girl.

    To make matters even more messy, Lea's former Glee costar Jane Lynch — who's also in Funny Girl — is exiting production earlier than expected.

    Between replacing Beanie, Jane leaving early, and Lea's less-than-stellar history*, Twitter had a field day with the news.
