In April, come celebrate Barbra Streisand!
Singer, actress, producer and film director Barbra Streisand has won one Tony, 2 Oscar, 5 Emmy, and 8 Grammy Awards. As a singer, she has released more than 60 albums, including 12 soundtrack albums in films and is the female artist with the most gold, platinum and multi-platinum albums. As an actress, Streisand has starred in iconic films including A Star is Born, The Way We Were, The Main Event and many more!
In this bittersweet, classic musical drama, the vibrant and beautiful young Jewish-American actress Fanny Brice (Barbra Streisand in her “Best Actress” Oscar-winning performance) starts out as a bit player on the New York City vaudeville stage, but works her way up to stardom on Broadway. Valued for her vocal and comedic talents by the renowned theater impresario Florenz Ziegfeld (Walter Pidgeon), Fanny thrives, but her relationship with her suave, imprisoned businessman husband, Nick Arnstein (Omar Sharif), is another story.
Registration is not needed.
