After the performance, People published an interview with Lea in which she delved into the emotional circumstances under which she learned that she had been given the role of her life.

Funny story: I got the call from my agents that I got the part. I had no idea. I was literally at Bubby’s with my kid [two-year-old son Ever], feeding him buttered pasta and broccoli. And I got a call from my agents, and they said, “You’re going to be Fanny Brice in Funny Girl.”

“And as I looked up, I start to cry hysterically, and I’m like, oh my god,” she gushed.

It was clear that Lea’s opening performance was a resounding success as she received four standing ovations before the break.

While her performance appeared to be a hit with audiences when the musical was halfway through, she also faced viewers who reportedly laughed at a rule about reading books after online trolls claimed she can’t read.

“Lea Michele has gotten four standing ovations on Funny Girl so far, and it’s just a hiatus,” one fan tweeted. “I’ve stood in front of all four of them. The Gleek jumped out.’
