'Funny Girl' Tickets: How to Watch Jane Lynch in the Hit Broadway Show

Funny Girl is being brought back to Broadway by American Idiot's Michael-Mayer in spring 2022 after almost 60 years of being absent from the NYC stage. Emmy-winning actress Jayne Lynch was recently cast in the role of Mrs. Rosie Brice in the upcoming Broadway revival, joining Tony and Olivier Award nominee Ramin Karimloo, Impeachment's Beanie Feldstein and A Soldier's Play star Jared Grimes.

Funny Girl is a musical about the rise of real-life comedian and actress Fanny Brice to stardom as well as her relationship with professional gambler Nick Arnstein. Barbra Streisand originated the role on stage, before winning an Oscar for Best Actress for her performance in the 1968 film adaption.

The original production of Funny Girl also received eight Tony Award nominations, including best musical, so musical buffs are certainly in for a treat. Here are all the ways you can buy tickets and every other detail you need to know.
