The producers announced a month ago that she and another actor, Jane Lynch, would be leaving their roles on September 25, instead of at the end of the year as had been anticipated at the beginning of the year.

Feldstein explained the decision in her post by stating that the producers “decided to take the program on a different path,” but she did not provide any further context or explanation.

She said in an essay that she had “playing Fanny Brice on Broadway has been a lifetime ambition of mine,” and that the fact that she had been able to fulfill that desire during the past six months had been “a huge thrill and a true honor.”

“Once it became clear that the production was going to alter the course of the show, I was faced with the exceedingly challenging choice of leaving the role much earlier than I had planned.”

She then continued by thanking people who had come to attend her performance and praising the other members of the cast and crew.

She wrote, “I will never forget this experience, and from the bottom of my heart, I want to thank every single person who came to the August Wilson for the love and support you have shown me and our amazing cast and crew.”

“I will never forget this experience, and from the bottom of my heart, I want to thank every single person who came to the August Wilson for the love and support you have “The people I have had the great joy of bringing Funny Girl to life with every night, both on and off the stage, are all astonishingly talented and exceptional humans and I hope you continue to join them on Henry Street after I depart on July 31st,” she said.

“The people I have had the great joy of bringing Funny Girl to life with every night, both on and off the stage, are all remarkable individuals.”

On Sunday, the official Twitter account for the show posted that “major casting announcements” would be made available for viewing on Monday at 1 p.m. Eastern Time.

According to a post that was retweeted by the official account, understudy Ephie Aardema made her first appearance on stage as the character on Sunday.

The revival opened in April to a variety of reactions, with many critics claiming that the actress did not live up to the legacy of Barbra Streisand, who originated the role on Broadway in 1964 and was nominated for a Tony Award for her work there.

Streisand went on to win an Academy Award for her portrayal of the role in the 1968 film adaptation of the musical.

Despite the fact that Streisand’s “legacy is a lot to live up to, for any performer,” David Rooney of The Hollywood Reporter wrote in his review that Feldstein “has a lovely, light singing voice in a part that often calls for big-belt power.”

He also mentioned that Streisand’s “legacy is a lot to live up to, for any performer.” Following a positive test for COVID-19 earlier this month, Feldstein was forced to cancel numerous shows.

In a statement that they released the previous month, the producers hinted that Gimes and Karimloo would be staying on the show.
