Barbra talks about the movie in this exclusive interview:

Barbra, in “The Guilt Trip” you play an over concerned mother. How much of your character is really you?
STREISAND: Oh, a little bit. You always try to identify with the character and to look for similarities. I am definitely a mother that likes to look after her son. But isn’t that how all mothers are? Read more »

THE SHOW:

Here’s how the LA Times described your show:
The evening’s talky rhythm (the show had more asides than a Shakespeare tragedy) put the audience immediately under the spell of her folksy grandiosity. Streisand … isn’t just a star — she’s a world view, a style of being, an entire cosmology, with the highest possible thread-count sheets. You don’t just come for the music; you come for the whole church service. The sermon, broken up into bits, is inseparable from the songs.

I was very saddened to hear of Allison Waldman's passing Monday. She had been struggling bravely for many years to beat cancer.

I knew Allison over the years as a very good writer and a kind and loyal fan of mine who created and wrote "The Barbra Files" magazine and "The Barbra Streisand Scrapbook"... she was always wonderful to me. She was dedicated to the accuracy of the news she conveyed, and she shaped her stories with great style.Read more »

I’m so saddened to learn of Phil’s passing.

We first worked together in 1967 when I did a free concert in Central Park. His brilliance at capturing sound was immediately evident.

Later we worked together on the film “A Star Is Born” where Phil was able to record me singing live, including “Evergreen”. In the next decade we worked on the soundtrack to “Yentl” and many other recordings.Read more »
