Based on an original story by Isobel Lennart

Funny Girl is the semi-autobiographical tale of Fanny Brice's meteoric rise to fame and her stormy relationship with Nick Arnstein, a wealthy and charming gambler. From her start as a gawky Brooklyn teen fast-talking her way into show business to becoming the toast of New York to the unraveling of her personal life, Funny Girl is a stunning, richly told tour de force about one of Broadway's biggest stars. The endearing, poignant musical features a parade of great tunes including "People" and "Don't Rain on My Parade".

Steven Brinberg is Simply Barbra @ the M Bar in HollywoodSteven Brinberg is Simply Barbra @ the M Bar in Hollywood
by Don Grigware - Mar 6, 2011

What makes a celebrity a legend? At the beginning of a career, it's talent, lots of drive and guts, great press and of course just a little bit of luck. Once on top, the celebrity must sustain over time the image that catapulted her to stardom. There's a mystique, a je ne sais quoi, that should keep the star out of reach, inaccessible. Barbra Streisand has managed to become an icon, so when a female impressionist attempts to reproduce the speech, the incredible singing voice and style, and every hand gesture and body movement - and the overall persona - that have all made la Streisand one-of-a-kind, it would seem next to impossible to ingest it all and give it back believably. Steven Brinberg is the major exception. He sings exactly like Streisand, speaks with her quiet, laid-back manner and sense of humor, and has the hand and body movements down to perfection. For an hour and a half, one is convinced that he is in the company of the legend. Simply Barbra puts Streisand in closer proximity to an audience than usual and we revel in her individual candor and quirky attitude thanks to the astounding artistry of Steven Brinberg. (more...)

Patti LuPone Talks Potential Streisand GYPSYPatti LuPone Talks Potential Streisand GYPSY
by BWW News Desk - Mar 29, 2011

Back on March 21, Deadline.com reported that despite comments that Arthur Laurents made to the Hartford Courant earlier this month, that a GYPSY movie starring Barbra Streisand is still a possibility. Patti LuPone was asked about the potential of the film during an interview with Fort Worth theatre web site, theaterjones.com. Any thoughts on the Barbra Streisand Gypsy remake that's off and on again? Doesn't that tell you it's not going to happen? Arthur Laurents told me the three actresses he had in mind for the role, and of the three, Streisand was the best choice. I think she's the best choice. Do you think it will ever happen? I hope it doesn't?ha! Movie musicals aren't done well anyway. There's no time for applause for the numbers. They aren't shot correctly?you need to see the dancing. If Streisand gave herself over to the part...singing 'Rose's Turn' is all about giving up control and discovering it every time. I think Streisand is very in control. She would be like, 'I'm going to fart, and everyone's going to hear it!' (more...)
