Yes. Of course. And my tone in response to you was not meant to be challenging or snide. I hope it didn’t come off that way.
It’s just that all these labels and how we self-identify and how others identify us has made it more and more important to make casting choices that support the storylines, which includes never ignoring history or political-racial-religious context.
Funny Girl’s script doesn’t make a big case for it, in the text, but the show’s early musical numbers assert that Fanny is going to take her differences and her ethic identity and put it front and center as part of her triumph.
