|Megan Mullally’s “Karen” has the blues on Will & Grace|
Watching this week’s mid-season premiere of Will & Grace last night, I was pleasantly reminded what a talented singer Megan Mullally is as her “Karen” delivered a stirring rendition of the iconic Judy Garland standard, “The Man That Got Away,” from her 1954 film, A Star is Born.
As the divorce with her husband Stan is finalized, Karen becomes melancholy and imagines herself in a dark club at a piano (it’s really a laundromat, but, isn’t that always the way?).
In addition to the short snippet of the song that made the episode, the producers of W&G have posted Mullally’s full performance of the song – and it is quite the moment.
Prior to W&G fame, Mullally spent many nights singing on the Broadway stage in hit musicals like Grease and How To Succeed in Business.
Will & Grace airs Thursdays at 9:30 p.m. on NBC. Check out Mullally’s full performance below.
