Barbra and Frank: The Concert that Never Was…

Barbra and Frank: The Concert that Never Was at the New Players Theatre for a limited season from Wed 24 Nov until Sat 18 Dec 2010.

Following sell-out seasons in America and worldwide, the hit Las Vegas tribute show Barbra & Frank: The Concert that Never Was… will arrive in the UK for a strictly limited engagement at the New Players Theatre from Wednesday 24 November to Saturday 18 December 2010, starring Sharon Owens as Barbra Streisand and Sebastian Anzaldo as Frank Sinatra.

A sensational tribute to Streisand and Sinatra, who are arguably the finest voices of the century, with a touch of seasonal magic thrown in, Barbra & Frank: The Concert that Never Was… offers an insight into what might have happened had these two powerhouses of popular music ever shared the same stage. Legends of a lifetime locked in harmony.

In the lauded Las Vegas show, Barbra and Frank: The Concert that Never Was…, the rapport of these two 20th century icons is brought to the fore. Fusing music and chat, the show includes segments in which Streisand and Sinatra create masterful duets of ‘Somewhere’, ‘Something Stupid’ And ‘New York, New York’, and a sequence involving a delicate blending of two of their best signature songs, as Sinatra croons verses from ‘It Was A Very Good Year’ intertwined with Streisand’s eternally memorable ‘The Way We Were’.

Sharon Owens, winner of the smash hit US TV show Performing As…, and Sebastian Anzaldo, runner-up in the equally popular US TV series The Next Best Thing and one of American’s best loved Sinatra interpreters, have captivated audiences around the world with their originally self-produced Las Vegas show that brings laughter, tears and joy to every person watching. Sebastian’s crooning sounds of Sinatra bring “memories” to an audience who remember the late great “ol’ blue eyes” himself, while the uncanny looks of Sharon bring out the Funny Girl herself, Streisand, who does it the only way she knows how…Her Way.

Barbra And Frank at New Players Theatre from 24 November 2010

It is unlikely that the two powerhouse voices of the century would have ever shared the same stage…until now!

They never worked together, exactly, except when they taped a duet in separate recording sessions, but it’s tantalizing to think what it would have been like to have Barbra Streisand and Frank Sinatra teamed up for a concert tour.Imagine the possibilities. Would one have outshone the other? Would their onstage banter have been friendly or a bit snippy?

In the Las Vegas Hit show, Barbra and Frank, the rapport of these two 20th century icons is immediately prevalent. As good as the music is, the banter between the stars is equally memorable.The Concert That Never Was includes segments in which Streisand and Sinatra create masterful duets of Somewhere, Something Stupid and New York New York.A highlight of the show is a delicate blending of two of their signature songs as Sinatra croons verses from It Was A Very Good Year intertwined with Streisand’s memorable The Way We Were.

The Full Monty at New Players Theatre

The Full Monty – Opens Wednesday 2nd December at New Players Theatre London

Seeing how much their wives enjoy watching male strippers during their “Girls’ Night Out,” unemployed steelworkers in Buffalo, New York come up with a bold way to make some quick cash. In the process they find renewed self-esteem, the importance of friendship and the ability to have fun.

As the guys work through their fears, self-consciousness, feelings of worthlessness and anxieties (over everything from being overweight to child custody, bigotry to being gay), they come to discover that not only are they stronger as a group, but that the strength they find in each other gives them the individual courage to face their demons and overcome them.

This new production of the smash hit show is directed by acclaimed young musical theatre director Thom Southerland.
