First Look At GLEE's Gorgeous FUNNY GIRL Tribute With Lea Michele & Naya Rivera
FOX's hit musical dramedy series Glee has repeatedly paid tribute to legendary Broadway and Hollywood superstar Barbra Streisand as well as done due diligence insofar as spotlighting her famous first star vehicle, FUNNY GIRL, yet the new photos that have leaked of the upcoming tribute to the Fanny Brice-inspired musical are, in a mere word or two: hello, gorgeous!
Lea Michele dons duds similar to Barbra Streisand's legendary 1968 Academy Awards Best Actress acceptance outfit in a fully staged and costumed sequence from a promotional photo shoot for the new production of the musical depicted on the series, while Naya Rivera shows off a sleek and modern look in a rehearsal scene while auditioning to nab the role of a Fanny Brice understudy.
Of note, FUNNY GIRL plays a central role in the first episode back following the midseason return of the series, in an ep titled "Frenemies", centering on Santana (Naya Rivera) and Rachel (Lea Michele) both vying for parts in the production.
"Frenemies" airs in GLEE's new day and time, on Tuesday, February 25 at 8 PM.
