Will Lady Gaga star as Fanny Brice in a Broadway revival of Funny Girl?
According to Rosie O'Donnell, who was a special guest at Randy Rainbow's comedy tour at The Paramount Theater in Huntington, New York, she will star opposite none other than Lady Gaga in an upcoming Broadway revival of the classic musical Funny Girl. Ms. O'Donnell claimed that she would be taking on the role of Fanny Brice's mother with Lady Gaga headling the revival as Brice herself. The production would mark the first ever Broadway revival of Funny Girl, which originally ran from 1964 to 1967. The role of Fanny Brice was originated on Broadway (and immortalized on film in 1968) by Barbra Streisand.
