‘Funny Girl’ Crowd Marvels at Lea Michele Line While Reading Books

It was a night full of “Glee”.

Lea Michele, who made her Broadway debut “Funny Girl” on Tuesday, had the audience laughing on one particular line.

At the start of the series, Michele’s character, Fanny Brice, said the following: “I hadn’t read many books.” Fans erupted in hysteria over the persistent rumor that the former ‘Glee’ star can’t read or write, which Michele recently shot down.

The 36-year-old actress first fell victim to illiteracy rumors in 2017 when her late co-star Naya Rivera’s memoir revealed that Michele refused to improvise her lines on set.

Michele responded to the allegations recently, saying that the the comment is sexist and that if she were a man, no one would dispute that.

“There’s a rumor online that I can’t read or write? It’s sad. It really is. I often think that if I was a man, a lot of things wouldn’t be the case,” the “Spring Awakening” alum. told the New York Times.
