Our Name is Barbra 2017 Celebrates Streisand’s 75th Birthday

By GENNA RIVIECCIO

As the big seven-five approaches for Barbra Streisand, her culture influence shows no signs of slowing down: Nor does her legion of fans and fellow musicians in offering reverence for the icon. That’s why, in honor of Babs’ milestone birthday, Project Angel Food will be celebrating with a tribute to the unparalleled legend with the nineteenth edition of Our Name Is Barbra on Sunday, April 23 at 7 p.m – just in time for Streisand’s actual birthday on the 24th.

The benefit at the Prospect Theater will further Project Angel Food’s service to the community in aiding local men and women living below the poverty line with critical illnesses like HIV/AIDS, cancer and heart disease. The celebration of Streisand and her unparalleled canon of work over these past decades is set to include a roster of guests and performers including Mary Wilson of the Supremes, Jodi Burnett Mandel and songwriter Allan Rich.

Directed by Cliff Bell and with musical direction by Tim Butterworth, Michael Collum, Ben Lanzarone, Bill Newlin and Ron Snyder, the spectacle is sure to be in keeping with Streisand’s usual standard of glitz, glamour and excellence. As one of the best-selling music artists of all-time–which has often gone hand in hand with her equally impressive film career – Streisand has no shortage of classic songs to choose from. And, of course, her special affinity with Broadway and the theater makes this tribute extra unique. The evening will also feature performances from the cast of “Encore! A Celebration of the 60th Anniversary of the MBCC Theater” with David Samuel Childs, Erin Beck and Caytlan Wayt.

Tickets for the show start at $25 and can be purchased at prospecttheatre.la. And, as the website teases, “She hasn’t joined us yet but as she said herself in “Yentl”… ‘Nothing’s impossible.’” And, after all, she does live in Malibu. So whether you’re a die hard fan or a casual listener, celebrate the birthday of one of Brooklyn’s finest while also lending support to a great cause.

  43. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout
    of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot
    of text for only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  44. You are so awesome! I do not think I have read a single thing like that before.

    So great to find someone with unique thoughts on this issue.
    Seriously.. thank you for starting this up. This site is something that is required on the web,
    someone with some originality!

  45. After looking into a few of the blog posts on your website, I honestly appreciate your way of blogging.
    I book marked it to my bookmark site list and will be checking back in the near future.
    Please check out my web site as well and tell me your opinion.

  46. You’re so interesting! I don’t suppose I have read a single thing like that before.
    So wonderful to find somebody with a few original thoughts on this topic.
    Seriously.. many thanks for starting this up. This website is something that is required on the
    internet, someone with a bit of originality!

  47. When someone writes an post he/she keeps the thought of a
    user in his/her mind that how a user can be aware of it.
    Thus that’s why this post is outstdanding. Thanks!

  48. I believe everything said made a lot of sense. But, what about this?
    suppose you wrote a catchier post title? I am not suggesting your
    content is not solid., but what if you added a post title
    that grabbed people’s attention? I mean Our Name is Barbra 2017 Celebrates Streisand’s 75th Birthday – The Pride LA is kinda boring.
    You should peek at Yahoo’s front page and see how they create post headlines to get viewers to
    open the links. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to grab readers interested about what you’ve got to say.

    In my opinion, it would bring your posts a little bit more interesting.

  49. It’s actually a cool and helpful piece of information. I am
    satisfied that you shared this helpful information with us.
    Please keep us up to date like this. Thanks for sharing.

  50. An interesting discussion is definitely worth comment. I believe
    that you ought to write more on this subject, it might not be a taboo subject but usually people do
    not discuss these issues. To the next! Best
    wishes!!

  51. You made some really good points there. I checked on the web for
    more information about the issue and found most people will go along with your views on this web site.

  52. eаch timе i useɗ to reaԀ smaller posts ԝhich also clear their motive, and that іs also
    happening with this post whicһ I am reading at this time.

  53. Generally I don’t read article on blogs, however I
    wish to say that this write-up very pressured me to try and do it!
    Your writing style has been amazed me. Thanks, very
    great post.

  54. We are a group of volunteers and opening a new scheme in our community.
    Your web site provided us with valuable information to
    work on. You’ve done a formidable job and our entire
    community will be thankful to you.

  55. An outstanding share! I’ve just forwarded this onto
    a co-worker who was conducting a little research on this.

    And he actually bought me lunch simply because I stumbled upon it for him…
    lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thanks for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanx for spending time to talk about this subject here on your internet site.

  56. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the
    way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or
    2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  57. Hello, Neat post. There is a problem with your website in web explorer, may test this?
    IE still is the marketplace chief and a big component of other people
    will miss your great writing due to this problem.

  58. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and everything. But
    think about if you added some great visuals or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and clips,
    this blog could undeniably be one of the very best in its field.
    Superb blog!

  59. I’ve read several just right stuff here. Certainly worth bookmarking for revisiting.
    I wonder how much attempt you put to make the sort of great informative web
    site.
