Funny Girl is the story of Fanny Brice, a wonderful actress known for her broad comedy and unconventional looks. It is not about Barbra Streisand. Barbra is the most famous actress associated with that role, but she was playing Fanny.
Dressing up Rachel in copies of Barbra’s various costumes from that era, including Barbra’s hairstyle (rather than the hairstyle that Fanny actually wore) just cements that the show wasn’t interested in having Rachel actually play the role straight. They only were interested in again painting Rachel (and Lea) as the new Barbra.
This is the real Fanny Brice. A rather significant difference from the superficial representation that we were given of the actress who played her and not the woman that the show was written to honor.
Seeing Kurt look so happy over a performance of Peter Pan at a retirement home when Rachel is simultaneously throwing away Broadway makes me want to sob with rage
