|Simply Barbra Brings Back Streisand
- Steven Brinberg's comedy comes to town
STEVEN BRINBERG's comedy cabaret comes to the West End October 7-12. Simply Barbra runs late nights at the Arts Theatre following Eve Ensler's hit show The Vagina Monologues. The one man show stars the versatile Brinberg as Streisand in a collection of songs and stand up routines.
Simply Barbra opened in New York back in 1993 and has just completed a sell out tour of Sydney and Singapore. The show features snippets of gossip and anecdotes about the lives of various movie stars.
Brinberg's show pays tribute to other stars including Julie Andrews, Bette Davis, Ethel Merman, Celine Dion, Cher, Carol Channing, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Eartha Kitt and Neil Diamond. Brinberg's talent for impersonation and characterisation recently won him an MAC Award from the Manhattan Association of Cabaret and Clubs.
