News   Jonathan Groff, Deven May and Rob Sapp to Join Simply Barbra in Manhattan
 
Simply Barbra — starring Steven Brinberg as the Academy and Grammy Award-winning actress and singer Barbra Streisand — returns to Manhattan this month with five shows at the Metropolitan Room.

While Streisand's current concert tour boasts the four-man group Il Divo, Simply Barbra will offer its own selection of male guest stars. Playbill.com has learned that Spring Awakening's Jonathan Groff will join Brinberg Oct. 11, followed by Li'l Abner's Eddie Rabon Oct. 12, Jersey Boys' Erich Bergen and Deven May Oct. 13, Wicked's Robb Sapp Oct. 14 and A Chorus Line's Joey Dudding Oct. 15. All shows are scheduled for 8 PM. It's a busy fall for Brinberg, who will head to Oklahoma City Nov. 3 and 4 as a guest star with Marvin Hamlisch and the Oklahoma City Symphony. A one-night engagement at the Gardenia in Los Angeles — with special guest Adrian Zmed — will precede a week's run at San Francisco's Plush Room beginning Nov. 13.

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 the U.K. and the West End, following record-breaking runs at London's Playhouse and Jermyn Street theatres. Brinberg is the winner of the MAC Award and the Bistro Award for his Simply Barbra performances. He also appeared in the workshops of Ken Page’s musical Nightlife.
