Jane Lynch Leaving Funny Girl Even Earlier Than Expected

Lynch’s August 14 departure is the latest schedule change for the Emmy winner, who was originally set to depart on Sept. 25 alongside Feldstein. However, after the Lady Bird star announced an earlier exit, Lynch decided to leave the show earlier as well, explaining that she and the producers felt it was best for her former co-star, Michele, and Feldshuh to kick off their performances together. “That’s the only reason [we won’t appear together],” Lynch told Deadline in July. “I adore her. She’s just going to take this show and make it her own. I’m so glad she’s getting the opportunity in real life to do the show and not just on Glee.”

Feldstein, who received mixed reviews for her Broadway debut, expressed admiration for the cast and crew, nothing that it was a dream come true to play Fannie. “I will never forget this experience and from the bottom of my heart, I want to thank every single person who came to the August Wilson for the love and support you have shown me and our amazing cast and crew,” the star continued. “The people I have had the great joy of bringing to life with every night, both on and off the stage, are all remarkably talented and exceptional humans and I hope you continue to join them on Henry Street after I depart on July 31st.”
