‘Streisand Songbook’ at the Pantages

Mar 11th, 2014 | By | Category: Lifestyles

Platinum Award-winning singer-songwriter Ann Hampton Callaway will perform “The Streisand Songbook” March 22 at the Pantages Theater in  Tacoma, singing classics from five decades of Barbra Streisand’s career in tribute to one of America’s most enduring musical artists.

The show is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Tickets are on sale.

Callaway celebrates the icon who once described herself as being “simple, complex, generous, selfish, unattractive, beautiful, lazy and driven.”  The versatile Callaway expertly paints a musical portrait of “Babs,” performing works from her Broadway years (“Funny Girl”), her films (“A Star is Born”), her early pop albums (“People”), and her later concept album (“Higher Ground”), which debuted at number 1 on Billboard and featured Callaway’s original anthem, “At The Same Time.”

Callaway is best-known for her Tony-nominated performance in the hit Broadway musical “Swing!” as well as for writing and singing the theme song to the TV series “The Nanny.” In addition, six of her songs are featured on six of Streisand’s recent CDs.

Callaway’s Pantages performance will be accompanied by Tacoma Symphony Orchestra.

Tickets ($35, $45, $59 and $79) can be ordered through the Broadway Center at 253-591-5894 or 1-800-291-7593, and at broadwaycenter.org.
