Kelly Clarkson on her secret Broadway dream -- and which iconic role she'd like to play

Kelly Clarkson’s been playing the role of pop diva for quite a while—six studio albums’ worth of time, if we’re counting. But with her latest album, Piece by Piece (out March 3), her record deal is coming to a close—and Clarkson’s ready to “breakaway,” if you will, from her pop image.

So, what would she like to do next? Well, as Clarkson tells EW, the marquee lights of Broadway are calling her name.

“I would love to do something brand-new [on Broadway]. I think it would be exciting to create a role,” the singer reveals. “And maybe that’s because the musical I would want to revive is Funny Girl.”

True, Clarkson knows it would be difficult to step into Barbra Streisand’s immortal shoes—”she’s a hard act to follow!” she says, with a laugh—but there’s still something about Fanny Brice that draws her in. “I just relate to that character, and I’ve loved it since I was a little girl,” she says. “I’ve always kind of been that awkward girl that stood out—in not such a great way sometimes.” 

For more on the Broadway-ready Kelly Clarkson, pick up this week’s issue of EW on newsstands Friday, or download the digital edition at ew.com/allaccess.
