Funny Girl producers are attempting to clear the air! Ever since Beanie Feldstein announced her very early exit as Fanny Brice in the revival of the Broadway show, various insiders have come out of the woodwork claiming that the leading lady was “basically fired” after poor ticket sales and bad reviews.

One Page Six source even claimed producers had been “blindsided” by Beanie’s social media post confirming her exit — but, of course, they announced Lea Michele’s casting the next day, so that seemed a little doubtful.

Now the producers are speaking up — and claiming there was nothing shady about this recasting at all! Hmm. Related: Noah Schnapp Reacts Getting Called Out  For Leaking Doja Cat DMs!
