It's been 75 years, and in all of the world so far, she's still the greatest star.
If you couldn't afford to witness supreme diva, EGOT and Medal of Freedom awardee Barbra Streisand at her May 6 Barclays Center show, you're in luck: newly-renovated West Village theater the Quad is screening a whopping twelve Barbra movies for its Simply Streisand series. The rundown spans her entire career, from her debut (and Oscar-winning) film performance in Funny Girl opposite a smoking-hot Omar Sharif; delightful boxing romp The Main Event, co-starring a smoking-hot Ryan O'Neal; and, of course, the still-devastating The Way We Were, co-starring Robert Redford, also smoking-hot. Barbra really knew how to choose 'em, didn't she?
Here's the full lineup:
June 30: The Owl & the Pussycat
June 30–July 2: Funny Girl
June 30–July 4: Hello, Dolly!
July 1–6: The Main Event
July 1: All Night Long
July 1: What's Up, Doc? (Barbra's first great team-up with Ryan O'Neal.)
July 1–3: The Way We Were ("Who's Hubbell?")
July 1–5: On A Clear Day You Can See Forever
July 2: Up the Sandbox (There's a LOT going on in this one.)
July 2: For Pete's Sake
July 2: Funny Lady (Mmmm, James Caan...)
July 4: Yentl ("BECAUSE I LOVED YOU!")
July 4–5: The Prince of Tides (like a stick of buttah.)
July 4–6: A Star is Born (Who's ready for Gaga and Bradley Cooper?)
July 5: Nuts
July 6: The Mirror Has Two Faces
Missing from the list are the more forgettable Fockers sequels and Seth Rogan road-trip comedy The Guilt Trip.
