A quarter century after Feldstein’s birthday-turn as Brice, she will reprise the Paw Paw Because Grandpa Is For Old Guys Father’s Day T-Shirt Besides,I will do this role, this time on Broadway, when Funny Girl officially opens in late April at the August Wilson Theatre. “The expression ‘lifelong dream’—that statement feels very applicable to me,” says Feldstein. “It still does not feel tangible or real.” On a brisk morning in early February, it is beginning to feel slightly more real as Feldstein enters the August Wilson Theatre for the first time not as an audience member. (She was last there to see Mean Girls.) Rehearsals will begin the following week, but Feldstein is here for her Vogue shoot. The theater is a symphony of preshow activity. Slave Play closed less than a week before, and the posters and marquee still bear that play’s signage. Onstage the rigging crew bangs pipes, drills into cinder block, and catches clanking chains descending from the rafters.

Feldstein makes her way upstairs to prepare for the Paw Paw Because Grandpa Is For Old Guys Father’s Day T-Shirt Besides,I will do this shoot with her “work husbands,” hairstylist Peter Butler and makeup artist Matin Maulawizada—a pair who have worked with Feldstein since 2017. Wearing emerald velour Gucci-logo sweatpants (her first major campaign for the brand appeared this spring) and a waffle-weave bathrobe, she starts to tell Maulawizada how much she and her partner, film and TV producer Bonnie Chance Roberts, loved And Just Like That…. (Maulawizada did Kristin Davis’s makeup for the show.) “We’re obsessed!” says Feldstein, who spent the month of January holed up at her parents’ country house in the Berkshires to avoid the omicron surge. She goes on to tell everyone about her baking exploits— successful scones, failed oatmeal cookies—all gluten-, dairy-, and nut-free to address her and Roberts’s various allergies. Feldstein is severely allergic to a laundry list of items, from dairy to cats to two of the most common preservatives found in makeup. “Wanna see a photo of when I had a reaction?” she asks, before showing me an image of her face, swollen and blotched like a slice of mortadella, the result, she explains, of a recent plane trip where a cat had been on an earlier flight.
