The singer and Glee alum took to her Instagram story on Sunday to share a behind-the-scenes snapshot showing her and the cast belting out "Don’t Rain On My Parade.

The incredible @ephieaardema got a photo of me singing Don’t Rain On My Parade on a Broadway stage for the first time ever today.

It was announced in July that Lea Michele has been cast to take over for Beanie Feldstein, who left the Broadway revival of Funny Girl two months early.

Michele, who previously starred in the original cast of Spring Awakening, is expected to formally take over the role starting Sept.

It was also announced that Tony nominee and Walking Dead actress Tovah Feldshuh will replace Michele’s former Glee co-star, Jane Lynch, as Mrs. Brice.

The news of Michele in the role, meanwhile, comes after many longtime fans had hoped she would be cast in the production when the revival was first announced last year.

“There is a misconception that there are these roles that I am desperate to play. And yes, they are.

Michele added, “I think that everyone has wanted this show to come back for so long. I am a huge fan and always have been.”
