As far as going back to Broadway, she said it makes her happy.

“It’s such a joy to be a part of the Broadway community, to be home to me, I love it so much,” she said.

“I started performing when I was eight in Les Miserables and now after so many years to be back on Broadway for my fifth show, it was a dream to star as Fanny Brice in Funny Girl.”

As far as juggling the show and being a mom to her son ever, at the age of two, she says she’s doing the best she can.

I think about it, I have the best husband, he’s great, he helps. But it is a challenge. My son knows that I sing and go to work.

She also told her son that she loved him and would see him later.

The star was also in costume to perform “Don’t Rain on My Parade” with the hilarious cast.
