Funny Girl, now on Broadway at the August Wilson Theatre, has released brand-new production photos, featuring Beanie Feldstein and the stars of the Michael Mayer-helmed revival.

She's joined by Tony nominee Ramin Karimloo as Nick Arnstein, Jeff Award winner Jared Grimes as Eddie Ryan, and five-time Emmy Award winner Jane Lynch as Mrs Rose Brice.

Also featured in the cast are Peter Francis James as Florenz Ziegfeld, Ephie Aardema as Emma/Mrs Nadler, Debra Cardona as Mrs Meeker, Toni DiBuono as Mrs Strakosh, and Martin Moran as Tom Keeney. Rounding out the ensemble are Amber Ardolino, Daniel Beeman, Colin Bradbury, Kurt Csolak, John Michael Fiumara, Leslie Donna Flesner, Afra Hines, Masumi Iwai, Aliah James, Jeremiah James, Danielle Kelsey, Stephen Mark Lukas, Alicia Lundgren, John Manzari, Liz McCartney, Katie Mitchell, Justin Prescott, Mariah Reives, Leslie Blake Walker, and Julie Benko.

Back on Broadway for the first time in 58 years, Funny Girl features a classic score by Tony, Grammy, and Academy Award winner Jule Styne and lyrics by Tony nominee and Grammy Award winner Bob Merrill. The original book by Isobel Lennart is revised by Tony winner Harvey Fierstein.
