A few weeks ago Steven returned to London's Crazy Coq's with two advance sold out shows with a preview of the new show for The Green Room. The film version of the hit Broadway show was controversial at the time, but it earned several Oscars and is now considered something of a classic...the last true MGM-style musical produced. It was featured in April's TCM festival and will have national screenings in August.
Steven Brinberg was born and raised in NYC, and attended NYU. He created his first SIMPLY BARBRA show in 1993 at Don't Tell Mama cabaret where it ran a record-breaking 4 years, winning two MAC awards and a BISTRO award. The constantly updated show was subsequently seen in over 40 US cities and 9 countries including tours of Australia, The Far East, Spain, Mexico and several runs in London's West End at theatres The Charing Cross, SoHo Revue Bar and Leicester Square Theatres and The Edinburgh Festival. His London debut at the Jermyn Street Theatre broke all box office records and was extended repeatedly. He was nominated for a 2018 Robby Award for theatre and cabaret in Los Angeles.
Steven toured for over 12 years with the late Marvin Hamlisch (Barbra Streisand's musical director and composer of THE WAY WE WERE and A CHORUS LINE). Their symphony concerts together included appearances at the Kennedy Center and several co-starring Broadway legend Barbara Cook. Playwright Terrence McNally wrote the narration for Steven-as-Barbra for a concert at Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher Hall which was also seen in Seattle. At Carnegie Hall he made an appearance with the NYC Gay Men's chorus.
At Broadway's New Amsterdam Theatre, Steven was part of the all-star FUNNY GIRL concert featuring Kristin Chenoweth, Idina Menzel, Sutton Foster and Whoopi Goldberg and at the Hudson theatre in a concert of Marvin Hamslich's SWEET SMELL OF SUCCESS opposite Jeremy Jordan, Adam Jacobs and Marc Kudisch. At the Westbeth Theatre Center and Manhattan Theatre Club, he was featured in Ken Page's musical NIGHT LIFE starring Lillias White.
Special events include performances for Liza Minnelli, Lauren Bacall, Joan Rivers, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Patricia Neal, and Donna Karan.

Television appearances include Rosie O'Donnell, Sally Jessy Raphael, Good Morning Australia and a Jerry Springer show where no one was fighting!
