A Star is Born–The Story and Songs of Barbra Streisand.
Courtesy of the Gaslight.
If you don’t think Barbra Streisand is an absolute star, then you are probably actually not thinking of Barbra Streisand. Scientists agree that she’s one of the vocalists most worthy of having tribute shows in all of history. And the Gaslight Theatre has taken heed! Powerhouse vocalist Katherine Byrnes will be delivering hits on hits on hits, backed by an all-star band. “Don’t Rain on My Parade”? You got it. “Papa Can You Hear Me”? Absolutely. “Memory”? It wouldn’t be a Barbra Streisand tribute show without it. Can you get through the whole night without singing along? 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 8. Gaslight Theatre, 7010 E. Broadway. $22.95., with discounts for children, students, seniors and military. Details here.
