Photo Flash: GLEE's Lea Michele & Ryan Murphy Tease Broadway Revival of 'Funny Girl'
Last month, BWW reported that the FOX musical drama Glee had sent out a casting call for "a big and bold actor to take on the fun, fun, fun role of Rodrick Easton, a talented and theatrical man who has a huge ego," The role is thought to be a possible male co-star for Rachel Berry in the show's fictional Broadway revival of 'Funny Girl.'
Today, Glee creator and co-writer Ryan Murphy tweeted a photo of Michele dressed in character in front of a fully-decked out 'Funny Girl' marquee on New York's 44th Street in Times Square, home of the legendary St. James Theater. Accompanying the photo was the simple caption, 'Funny Girl.'
Responding to the post, Michele, whose Twitter handle is "Streisand Worshiper" - tweeted the identical photo with the cryptic caption, "#GleeinNYC #FunnyGirl #Broadway."
Stay tuned for a casting update when the fifth season of GLEE returns on Thursday, September 26th.
