In 1960, a seventeen-year-old kid from Brooklyn had plenty of talent but no connections and no money. Four years later, she was the top selling female recording artist in America and the star of one of Broadway’s biggest hits, Funny Girl.
Barbra Streisand’s story defies the old definitions of talent, beauty and success. She never craved the notoriety of being a “star”. Her drive was more human than that. Her ambition simple – prove her artistry to the loved ones who didn’t seem to care and became absent in her life.
Shirley Andress will perform the music of the talented, beautiful and successful Barbra Streisand at a concert to honor the rise of a star who never craved to be one. Starting out at 17 years old in Brooklyn, Streisand had no connections and no money yet four years later was the top-selling female recording artist in American and the star of a Broadway hit. Andress will sing Streisand's playlist from her first audition piece to leading lady.
