Barbra Streisand Sings 'Evergreen' & More In New BACK TO BROOKLYN Preview Clips
Two sensational new performance clips from the hotly anticipated PBS debut of legendary stage and screen icon Barbra Streisand's new concert special BACK TO BROOKLYN are now available to view.
Streisand enacts her Academy Award-winning A STAR IS BORN ballad "Evergreen" in one clip, while the celebrated chanteuse performs the Charlie Chaplin-penned standard "Smile" with talented vocal group Il Volo in the other new preview of the music event airing November 29.
Streisand stunned sold-out audiences around the world with the BACK TO BROOKLYN tour, featuring many gems highlighted on her newest album, RELEASE ME, as well as the classic hallmarks fans have come to know and love from her peerless recording career, Broadway appearances and extensive film resume, variously acting as star, director, producer and songwriter over the course of the last fifty years - to say Nothing of her fearless off-stage political activism and notable charity crusades.
"Being Good Isn't Good Enough", "Didn't We?", "You're The Top" and "How Deep Is The Ocean" - the latter alongside her son, Jason Gould, who is also featured in a solo number - are but a few of the new musical additions to Streisand's repertoire for this sparkling 2012-13 tour preserved on CD/DVD, which also showcased talented vocal trio Il Volo, famed trumpeter Chris Botti and a 65-piece orchestra led by conductor Bill Ross.
Of course, the legendary Marvin Hamlisch/Alan & Marilyn Bergman THE WAY WE WERE theme, as well as Streisand's Oscar-winning "Evergreen" and FUNNY GIRL's "Don't Rain On My Parade" feature into the spectacular show, as well, directed with theatrical flair and elegant precision by Streisand herself and longtime collaborator Richard Jay-Alexander, punctuated by moving and fascinating vintage film footage from Streisand's own personal collection.
