Lea Michele will have to take a break from centerstage – at least for the next few days.

The 36-year-old has officially tested positive for COVID-19 and has revealed that she will have to miss several performances of Funny Girl. 

Taking to her Instagram Story, Lea shared the news, saying:

“Unfortunately, I have officially tested positive for COVID. In following production I cannot return to the theater for 10 days.”

She went on to share that the production has been experiencing a wave of COVID:

“Thankfully staying home today and catching this early protected so many members of our company from being exposed. 

Funny Girl has been and still is tackling a tremendous wave of COVID with close to a dozen company members currently out.”

Lea remained positive, declaring:

“We are almost on the other side of this and our swings and understudies are doing such an incredible job to keep our show on its feet.

This week has been a dream come true and I cannot wait to get back. You better get ready. See you soon.”

Lea just began her run as Fanny Brice in Funny Girl on Broadway on Tuesday, September 6.
