Barbra Streisand gushed more than once that Monday’s concert at downtown Miami’s AmericanAirlines Arena, the closing date of her 13-concert “The Music…The Mem’ries…The Magic! Tour,” was to be her last concert.
She never grandstanded the statement or milked it for melancholy. She said it with what sounded like gratitude — a theme she would return to often during the two-plus-hour, 26-song set. This was the longest show of the tour, which was fitting since … Read more »

Each note brought sighs of reverie, each lovelorn lyric oohs and ahhs and applause.
All Barbra Streisand had to do was smile and sing, and the sold-out crowd at Tampa’s Amalie Arena was a big bowl of buttah in her palms.
“I’ve never been here, never been to Tampa-St. Pete,” Babs admitted Wednesday night, as if the nearly 12,000 fans in attendance didn’t know.
This was Stresiand’s first local concert after a half … Read more »

Barbra Streisand leaves little room for error when she’s onstage.
Her Sunday night show at Toyota Center was an exercise in perfectionism. Tasteful tea sets sat on tables. Flowers were tastefully arranged. A waitress in a black apron refreshed the tea during intermission.
Streisand herself clicked on an electric candle during the introduction to “Papa, Can You Hear Me?” from “Yentl.”
A large teleprompter hung above the audience halfway across the floor. Every … Read more »

Howdy, Barbra fans! It’s Nov. 26th, 2016 and we’re in H-Town! That’s right, I’m talkin’ ‘bout Houston, Texas – “Energy capitol of the world,” home to NASA, Clutch the Bear and the world-famous Astrodome.

To All of Barbra’s fans,
I believe this is the first note I have ever written to you on any web page… ever!
A writer I’m not… a manager I am, so here goes:
Thank you ALL for making Barbra’s latest album ENCORE: Movie Partners Sing Broadway a #1 album on this week’s Billboard Top 200.
Some are saying this is Barbra’s second #1 album of this decade… but I respectfully disagree.
By my count it’s her seventh #1 album … Read more »

When a project is nothing more than a germ of an idea in search of a blank piece of paper to land on, it’s fraught with possibilities. Only in hindsight can one evaluate whether the results were worth the effort.
When Barbra agreed to embark on her recently concluded “mini-tour” – 9 cities / 10 concerts – her decision was tempered with some ambivalence. That’s actually an understatement. First of all, putting a show together takes a heck of a … Read more »

When I heard the thrilling news that Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway had gone to #1 in the US, UK and Australia, I thought about the title of Hillary Clinton’s book, It Takes A Village!
I’m extremely happy to share this achievement with my brilliant movie partners: Alec Baldwin, Antonio Banderas, Jamie Foxx, Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman, Seth MacFarlane, Melissa McCarthy, Chris Pine, Daisy Ridley, Patrick Wilson, and my dear friend Anthony Newley. Also, special thanks to Bradley Cooper and … Read more »
