After missing performances due to a medical issue with her son Ever, Lea Michele returned to the Broadway production of Funny Girl. She also shared some good news on Ever’s condition.
After being hospitalized with an undisclosed illness, Lea Michele’s kid is on the mend.
On March 22, the actress said that she and her husband Zandy Reich had taken their 2-year-old son Ever Leo Reich to the hospital because he was dealing with a “scary health issue.” She also mentioned that she will be missing out on seeing Funny Girl on Broadway. On March 25, Lea returned to the stage in her role as Fanny Brice and discussed the condition of her lone child.
Quick greeting from the dressing room: “Hi. I plan on seeing Funny Girl again tonight.She posted a selfie video on Instagram Story in which she expressed her happiness at being back in the spotlight. It’s been a rough week, and things aren’t any better with our son. But he’s on the right track, so that’s something.
The actress also admitted to experiencing illness herself. After a week of not getting any sleep, she said, “I have a cold.” But I’m happy to be reunited with my Funny Girl kin.
Finally, she said, “I want to thank everyone for all the love and support this week. I found it to be quite entertaining. And to everyone here tonight, I couldn’t be happier, and I know we’re going to have a great time, so I guess it’s OK to say that I love you all.
Along with the photo, Lea also included the caption “Dear Lea and Zandy, You have our undying affection and unwavering backing. With love, from your Funny Girl family.
Lea replaced Beanie Feldstein as the lead role of the comedy musical in September 2022. Two months prior, Feldstein had departed the Broadway play. It was announced last month that Lea will remain with Funny Girl until its September finale.
She stated on Live With Kelly and Ryan, “I was only supposed to stay until June at first.” I accept this responsibility and am willing to have a baby. In that time, Broadway has changed a lot. I had no idea how this would affect us as a family or how being back in New York would feel.
She said, “But I’m having the finest time ever, and we have the best cast. It’s a lovely thing to do.
