Tribute performance pairs two beloved celebrities in song
Reagle Music Theatre of Greater Boston (RMT) presents Barbra & Frank: The Concert That Never Was starring Sharon Owens and Sebastian Anzaldo, on Sunday, February 23, at 2 pm, at Reagle Music Theatre, 617 Lexington Street, Waltham.
Pairing the two powerhouse voices of the century of Barbra Streisand and Frank Sinatra can only be "A Match Made in Las Vegas!" Owens and Anzaldo are artistic pros paying tribute to their characters, singing the most memorable music and songs ever written. Sinatra and Streisand only worked “together” once, when they taped a duet in separate recording sessions, but it’s tantalizing to think what it would have been like to have these superstars teamed up for a concert tour! The rapport between these two 20th century icons is immediately prevalent.
Setting the mood, film clips and photo stills of the living legends themselves grace the stage as the tribute artists bring their most famed tunes to life. Owens shares Streisand’s memorable songs including People, Second Hand Rose, Don’t Rain On My Parade, Evergreen, and Papa Can You Hear Me for starters. Anzaldo chimes in with Sinatra’s American songbook audience favorites including Come Fly With Me, Fly Me To The Moon, and My Way, and more. The duo shares the stage in good natured banter with tunes like You Can't Take That Away From Me, All Of Me, Witchcraft, Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered, Sue Me/I'll Know When My Love Comes Along, I Get A Kick Out Of You, and New York, New York. Heartfelt performances are interspersed with highlights from Streisand and Sinatra’s careers, a complete night of memorable entertainment.
