Lynch was originally scheduled to leave the production on 25 September but that date was later moved up to 4 September and on Tuesday, producers of the musical announced that she will be leaving on 14 August. "With my long-planned vacation on the books and then the Creative Arts Emmy Awards ceremony in LA on Thursday, September 1, I will take my final curtain call on August 14.” "As I embark upon my last week in Funny Girl, my heart is filled with gratitude for this wildly talented company led by Beanie Feldstein and our wonderful audiences for keeping theater alive!”
