"From "Funny Girl" to "Woman in Love". Her mission: to show us that passion, wit and intelligence are what makes a woman shine."
This is not a drill! Barbra Streisand is heading out on the road this summer with a series of shows in support of her 35th studio album, Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway, the follow-up to 2014's hugely successful record of duets, Partners. One of the world's most iconic recording artists, actors, philanthropist and advocates, a night with the Diva to end all divas promises classic songs, laughter and reminisces from her six-decade career, from the rough streets of 1940's Brooklyn to Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Winner, It's a must for fans of any age.
First recognised for her talents as 'the girl on the block with the good voice' in her native New York, Streisand was determined to become a star, leaving home at 16 and finding work in the city's cabaret clubs. It wasn't long before Broadway came a-knocking, giving her the chance to show off her pipes to larger audiences and expand on her first love, acting.
Since the early 1960's she has been a fixture of popular culture, releasing myriad songs, albums and captivating audiences with her stellar turns on the silver screen in Hello, Dolly!, A Star is Born, Funny Girl and many more, and selling over 245 million records the world over.
At the tender age of 73, Streisand shows no signs of slowing down. In addition to her new Partner's release, she is also likely returning to cinemas with a starring turn in the musical theatre classic, Gypsy.
