Simply Barbra comes to Roxbury Arts Group
Steven Brinberg has toured the world as Simply Barbra, and on Saturday, June 28, he stops in at The Roxbury Arts Group for a special cabaret appearance. This will be a night of unparalleled glamour and sophistication, at once witty and moving. And, unlike many star impersonators, this man can really sing!
Brinberg writes and stars in this delightful production, which critics worldwide have praised in glowing terms: “Scintillatingly funny, unnervingly accurate. A touchingly true tribute to the towering talent (and ego) of Barbra Streisand. A genuinely original show that is brilliantly scripted and beautifully performed.” This is London.
The show, which is updated annually, has been performed in London, Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia and throughout the U.S. He recently narrated the New York City Gay Men’s Chorus concert at Avery Fisher Hall, written especially for him by Terrence McNally. That program was also seen in Seattle.
Brinberg has performed at Stephen Sondheim’s 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.
His film credits include “Camp,” “Boys Life” and “Next Year in Jerusalem.”
Mr. Brinberg’s television appearances include The Rosie O’Donnell Show, Sally Jessy Raphael, Jerry Springer, Bert Newton, Kerri Anne (Australia), Fox News Channel and MTV’s Celebrity Death March as the voice of David Spade.
He appeared in two workshops of Ken Page’s musical, “Nightlife,” at Manhattan Theatre Club and Westbeth Theatre Centre and in “Ivanov” at the Jewish Rep.
A two-time Mac and Bistro award winner, Mr. Brinberg’s CD “Simply Barbra Live in London” is available on Jay Records. Coming soon is a CD of duets featuring Kaye Ballard, Mimi Hines, Debbie Gravitte, Karen Mason and many others.
Tickets are $15. Call 607 326-7908 for information.
