With deft skill, she brings Fanny Brice back to life on the recording, allowing modern audiences a chance to enjoy a taste of the woman who inspired the hit musical FUNNY GIRL.
Taking on the persona of Fanny Brice, Kimberly Faye Greenberg fills fabulous fanny: the songs & stories of fanny brice with the razzle dazzle and Showmanship that made the performer a true star and legend in her own right. With a brassy belt, a powerful nasal timbre that is used to add emphasis, and a delightfully light alto instrument, Kimberly Faye Greenberg pristinely channels the renowned icon as she performs.
"An effervescent toast to Fanny Brice"
"For any avid musical theatre lover Kimberly Faye Greenberg has brought Fanny Brice back into the spotlight, this CD is a must!"
On this superb disc, you’ll find that the Ziegfeld Follies star who’s so closely associated with Streisand comes to life anew thanks to Greenberg’s fine work. She’s actually played Brice in a trio of shows, and this album is based on her one-woman show dedicated to the singing comedienne. What’s great about Fabulous Fanny is that it resurrects, tunefully and hysterically, so many of the songs that Brice performed.

On Fabulous Fanny, Kimberly Faye Greenberg has done a great job at bringing to life the wonderful music of Ms Brice – and I think anyone listening to it will be surprised by the number of tracks they recognise – and ensuring that she is accessible to future generations. A lovely album that should be in everyone’s collection and played whenever you feel like you need cheering up.
