Simply Streisand Then and Now
Carla DelVillagio has the look and sound of "the Greatest Star", the incomparable Barbra Streisand. From the hair down to the trademark nails, she is "Simply Streisand" in every way. Whether singing with a live band or with recorded background musical tracks, this artist recreates the excitement and high energy vocals of Streisand's most powerful numbers and at the same time has the capability of singing with a beauty and purity of sound essential for the ballads that are so closely associated with this greatest of all singing actresses. An uncanny resemblance to "Vintage" 1964 Barbra, as well as her skill in portraying Ms Streisand as we know her now, has given her the ability to create a show that is completely unique. Entitled "Then and Now. A Tribute to the Artistry of Barbra Streisand" , this show, in 2 acts, encompasses the classic songs (and the 'look') so closely identified with the singer in the early days, as well as the songs she has made her very own in more recent years. "Then and Now" is distinctive in the industry, as no one else performs as both the younger and the more mature artist. In the 1st Act you might reminisce while listening to songs such as "I'm the Greatest Star", "Don't Rain on My Parade", "Starting Here, Starting Now", and "On a Clear Day" , while in the 2nd Act songs like "The Way We Were", "Stoney End", "Somewhere", "Evergreen" and "Papa Can You Hear Me?" "You Don't Bring Me Flowers" will bring back many more memories.
