Barbra's coming to New York for the holidays.
That is, world-renowned impersonator Steven Brinberg will bring his acclaimed Simply Barbra concert to Don't Tell Mama for a month of special holiday shows. Titled Simply Barbra — A Christmas Show, Brinberg will offer 8 PM shows on Dec. 6, 13, 20 and 27 and 6 PM performances on Dec. 8, 15, 22 and 29.
Brinberg's show will feature songs from Streisand's holiday album, including "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and "Jingle Bells." The performer will also offer a parody of "I Don't Remember Christmas" — an ode to former Streisand love Don Johnson — as well as the Sondheim standard "I'm Still Here." Christopher Denny is the show's musical director.
Steven Brinberg has performed his Streisand impersonation on stages in Atlantic City, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, Houston and the U.K. He recently completed a sold-out tour of Australia and performed his Streisand satire with Nathan Lane and Audra McDonald at a tribute to Stephen Sondheim.
