Simply Barbra live in Manchester

Simply Barbra live in Manchester

October 2023.

Performed worldwide for over 25 years, wherever Steven Brinberg performs his breathtaking live homage to the greatest diva of all, Barbra Streisand, he receives the kind of ecstatic reviews Barbra herself would kill for!

Steven Brinberg writes and stars as Simply Barbra, which is updated annually as he travels the U.S. with the show. He appeared by invitation from the late Marvin Hamlisch with the Symphony Orchestras of Dallas, Milwaukee, Buffalo and Norfolk, and with Barbara Cook and the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center. Mr. Brinberg performed at Stephen Sondheims birthday concert at the Library of Congress; at Carnegie Hall with Uptown Express; and on Broadway in the concert version of Funny Girl with Whoopi Goldberg. Simply Barbra has toured Australia and Asia twice, had three record breaking seasons at the Edinburgh Festival and West End runs at the Arts and Playhouse Theatres.

Musical Director: Nathan Martin

“He’s been doing Streisand so long, he’s better at it than she is!”- New York Times

“A delicious combination of bitchiness, genuine admiration and incisive comic timing” - The Times

“Steven Brinberg is probably the most gifted impersonated in the world. He has more talent in his false fingernails than most impersonators have in their whole bodies” - Theatreworld Magazine

*Two-time MAC and Bistro award winner*
