My first thought was that Jennifer Hudson would be great.
I'm a huge Christina fan but not sure I could see her doing this. (Let alone would she want to.) BTW did anyone see her on Letterman the other night? What was up with her voice? It sounded all reedy and different to me.
Hmmm, now that her name came up - is she already too old for it? I have a soft spot for her, she grew up nearby and was in the local community theatre.Sutton Foster

Lea Michele will not be able to do the revival. Unless Glee is declines quickly in popularity and is cancelled by 2011. There is no way Fox is going to allow the star of there hit show out of her contract for a year. At best she will be a temporary replacement during summer hitaus.

They could TOTALLY make it part of Glee for Lea to go to Funny Girl... she could still do parts of the show- cross promotion. She leaves school to go play the part... the show gets free publicity, she gets a Tony nomination, and she gets the show much press. And based on the Tony performance tonight, I would say that she is lobbying for it.
It could be possible that Lea will have "graduated" high school by 2012 and not have as big of a role on "Glee" after that. If they continue making each season the equivalent to a school year, and she was a sophomore this season, she would be "done" by spring 2012....
