Yesterday, performing at Radio City Music Hall, the singer took on "My Man" as first popularized by Fanny Brice and later reintroduced by Barbra Streisand, playing Brice, for FUNNY GIRL's film adaptation. See Clarkson's performance below!
FUNNY GIRL has a book by Isobel Lennart, music by Jule Styne, and lyrics by Bob Merrill. The semi-biographical plot is based on the life and career of Broadway, film star and comedienne Fanny Brice and her stormy relationship with entrepreneur and gambler Nicky Arnstein. The musical was produced by Ray Stark, who was Brice's son-in-law via his marriage to her daughter Frances, and starred Barbra Streisand. The production was nominated for eight Tony Awards. Earlier this year, a planned Broadway revival with Lauren Ambrose and Bobby Cannavale was delayed indefinitely.
