“I will always remember this experience and with the utmost sincerity, I need to thank everyone who came to the August Wilson for the love and support you have shown me and our astonishing cast and group. Individuals I have had the extraordinary delight of rejuvenating Funny Girl with each evening, both on and off the stage, are surprisingly gifted and uncommon people and I want to believe that you keep on going along with them on Henry Street after I leave on July 31st,” she finished up.

Feldstein’s depiction of the person denoted the first time in quite a while that Funny Girl had been on Broadway. The job was initially played by Barbra Streisand in 1964.
