Recalling the casting news for Andy Cohen on SiriusXM’s Andy Radio, Feldstein explained that when Michelle became popular on Twitter, she didn’t know what happened.
“By the way, I don’t know this is happening. Suddenly people started to explain to me, I thought: wait, what happened? She said.
“She wrote very sweetly on my Instagram. I don’t know that woman at all, but…” Feldstein continued, and then Cohen interrupted it, calling it a “pleasant” interaction.
“Oh, that’s great,” Cohen added.
When Feldstein shared her role as Fanny Brice on Instagram, Michele commented: “Yes! You are the greatest star! This will be epic!!!”

Feldstein also talked about what would happen if Streisand appeared on stage.
“Even if my high school drama teacher came to see Hello dolly I’m shaking,” she said. “I don’t want to know when someone is there. Of course not the queen herself. “
