She’s been famous longer than many of her fans have been alive. But actress, director, and most of all, singer Barbra Streisand continues to impress, and this time, she’s brought some impressive company along for the ride.
Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway (Columbia Records)
Featuring musical pairings with Such Hollywood mega-stars as Alec Baldwin, Jamie Foxx, Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway (among many others), the legendary performer’s latest release is nothing short of magical. Babs’ Broadway recordings include the cast albums featuring her Tony-nominated turns in 1962’s I Can Get It For You Wholesale and 1964’s Funny Girl. Additionally, she has released Great White Way-inspired collections such as 1985’s The Broadway Album and 1993’s Back to Broadway. Nevertheless, Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway shines beautifully on its own. Highlights include “Loving You” from Steven Sondheim’s Passion sung with Patrick Wilson, “Take Me to the World” from Sondheim’s originally-written-for-TV musical Evening Primrose duetted with Antonio Banderas, and “Anything You Can Do” from the classic Annie Get Your Gun performed with Melissa McCarthy. Fans who purchase the album at Target will also be treated to four exclusive bonus tracks. Get more info at barbrastreisand.com.
