"One might ask himself why: why revive Funny Girl, an iconic show with an iconic star? Why, when there are so many wonderful new playwrights, would Sidney Greene decide to dust off this tired old girl of a play? Frankly, I can only come up with a single answer and it’s Rachel Berry. It takes chutzpah to be willing to step into a great one’s equally great steps and make Fanny your own. Rachel has plenty of that, clearly, but she also has something else in spades: talent, mountains of it. I’m not talking about about the Appalachians, Berry is the Alps. I’m sure I could find fault in this green actress’ performance but shame on anyone who’d have the audacity to criticize the bold mistakes of a supernova exploding before our eyes. I just pray to God that no one saw me secretly wiping my tears during her show-stopping ‘Who Are You Now.’ I don’t know where inside that small frame Berry went to find the emotion she delivered with that song but she melted the icy hearts. I hope that this show runs for a long time, not because anyone needs to see ‘Don’t Rain on My Parade’ again, but because I want to enjoy Rachel Berry as she is now, and I know I’ll be going back for second time to enjoy her in her Broadway premiere." - The New York Times Review of Funny Girl

I wanted to be your gay bar superstar, but that’s just not who I am.
I get so uncomfortable when Sue gets a romance plot. Like I just feel gross.
this was the best fucking sass in the movie
