I reviewed the facts in the case in an earlier thread on this same subject. I'll repeat them here: Funny Girl was and is a musical that was tailor-made for Barbra Streisand. It isn't a great show without her, due largely to a stodgy, old-fashioned "showbiz-bio" book. (Even in 1964, nobody thought it was a great show. It was generally seen as a great production with a great star in a dullish musical with a predictable first act and a second act where nothing much happened except that the great Streisand got to sing some more.) The revival would be an iffy prospect for recoupment with a major "name"; Feldstein isn't a major "name."

The jury may draw its own conclusions.
