Hillary Clinton screams about Lea Michele in ‘Funny Girl’: ‘Don’t miss the show!’

Hillary Clinton took to social media on Tuesday (Nov. 22) to give Lea Michele and the cast of Broadway‘s Funny girl her personal stamp of approval.

“Had the best time seeing @leamichele and company in @funnygirlbway this weekend. Don’t miss the show!” wrote the politician on Instagram under a photo of himself posing with Glee alum who plays Fanny Brice. In one moment, Michele wears a simple gray cardigan as the former secretary of state and 2016 presidential candidate laughs next to her wearing a name tag necklace bearing the name of her eight-year-old granddaughter, Charlotte.

Clinton’s visit to the August Wilson Theater comes just a week after Michele and her cast mates unveiled the new Broadway cast recording of the revival, which features studio versions of classics like “I’m the Greatest Star,” “Sadie, Sadie,” ” People”. ” and of course “Don’t rain on my parade.”

And while Funny girl‘s leading lady has had plenty of famous visitors backstage lately, including Olivia Rodrigoher Glee castmates have generally disagreed on whether they want to watch the show.

On the one hand, Darren Criss, Becca Tobin and Michele’s bestie Jonathan Groff have all stopped by for a backstage visit. On the other hand, Tony winner Jenna Ushkowitz, Kevin McHale and Chris Colfer have all either politely dodged the question or made it clear they won’t be in the audience. (“I can be triggered at home,” joked the latter when Michelle Collins asked about watching the show.)
