On her way out: Jane Lynch will be leaving the new Broadway revival of Funny Girl at the end of this week - three weeks earlier than originally anticipated; seen in MarchJane has been a part of the current revival since it opened this year on April 24 with Booksmart star Beanie Feldstein in the title role of Fanny Brice - a part that was famously originated by Barbra Streisand in 1964.The current production features Jane in the role of Fanny's mother Rose, who was played by Kay Medford in both the original production and the 1968 movie adaptation, for which Barbra won her first Oscar. Tovah Feldshuh was scheduled to take over for Jane on September 6, and that date is unchanged, so Jane's standby Liz McCartney will play Rose in the interim.
