Steven Brinberg: Simply Barbra

Steven Brinberg masters not just Barbra Streisand’s mannerisms but her manner entire—the mixture of soft-spoken entitlement and awkward preening that typifies this funny girl turned self-serious artiste. And Brinberg’s pseudo soprano is the next best thing to Streisand herself; he has a voice like I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. The 2016 holiday edition of his act includes Christmas songs by Jewish composers and guest appearances by Hamilton ensemblers Sydney James Harcourt and Thayne Jasperson.
