An evening with Babs

Last week I had the pleasure of spending an evening with Babs.  Yep, that's correct... Simply Barbra.

Steven Brinberg is the man behind Simply Barbra, an entertaining impersonation of Barbra Streisand. If this seems familiar to you its because this is not my first time enjoying Simply Barbra.  You can read my previous post from 2015 here.

As expected, this year's show wasn't the same as the one in 2015 so we were treated to lots of new songs and dialog between them.  I must say that while Brinberg is a man, he has an uncanny ability to sing in his falsetto and impersonate Babs.  And not only did he impersonate her voice, but also much of her signature body language and occasional 'surprise eyes'.

I thoroughly enjoyed the show and was amazed that 90 minutes had passed when she performed her final song and encore.  After the show she kindly posed for a photo with me.

Whether you're a Babs fan or simply one who appreciates talent, I highly recommend checking out Simply Barbra if you can.  Look for her tour schedule here.
