Thank you Alabama for giving our country a great Hanukkah present by electing Doug Jones.

Now we can have fun watching McConnell blame Bannon; FOX News blaming McConnell; and waiting to see who blames Trump and who he blames, fingers pointing in all directions.  Of course, we will have to watch McConnell push the obscene tax vote before Jones is seated.

Nonetheless, this is a huge statement combined with the Virginia election a few months ago that bodes very well … Read more »

Trump is a walking, talking illustration of what psychologists call “the disowned self,” a person who refuses to recognize his own flaws and instead projects them onto others. He accused Hillary Clinton of being a liar and said she was “Putin’s puppet,” when that glove seems to fit him. Before he was president, … Read more »

Security ordered, ‘No one is to look at Barbra Streisand!’ Pedestrians turned their faces to the wall. Among them Tommy Tune, who was in Vegas with his own New Year’s show and found the whole thing a riot! Tune worked with Streisand in Hello, Dolly! back in 1969, but he still followed orders.”

Barbra Streisand doesn’t mind paying for
jokes — but, as in all things, she wants a bargain.

The last time she went on tour, the
deal-diva asked star gag-writer Bruce Vilanch to work up some stage
banter. But when it came to talking money, the singer offered Vilanch a wage he found “ridiculously low.”

Vilanch, who has written for Robin Williams,
Whoopi Goldberg, Billy Crystal, and practically every awards show,
said no way. Streisand asked, “Well, what should I do?” … Read more »

If Barbra gets her way, you’ll be able to watch it from the comfort of your own home for $99.99! Although she’s earning $13 million for the Las Vegas show, Barbra wants to increase her take by airing her show on pay-per-view. She calculates she could take home an additional $50 million to start the New Year off right.”

“It’s okay to be as fiercely loyal to Bill Clinton as Barbra Streisand is. It’s okay for a celebrity to appear at stump speeches. It’s even okay for a celebrity to use her star power to help a candidate raise money. But when Streisand went online the day before the elections and gave the Democrats what amounted to a free hour-long advertisement, she went too far. The well-publicized online chat drew 41,000 hits from Streisand’s hoards of fans, who were … Read more »

By Howard Cohen – Miami Herald.

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 »

By Jay Cridlin – Tampa Bay Times.

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.

The team is back: Marty Erlichman (Barbra’s manager), Richard Jay-Alexander (Barbra’s co-director), and approx. 100 others, including Tommy (security), Peter, (lights), Chris (sound), Amy (script supervisor), Marty H. (tour director), JJ (production supervisor), and Renata (everything). We’re all watching and listening to … Read more »

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 »
