Barbra & Frank, The Concert That Never Was
September 10 ~ 14, 2014
Ticket Price: $25.00
Show Times: 8:00 PM

It is unlikely that the two powerhouse voices of the century would have ever shared the same stage…until now! Two great artists paying tribute to their characters, singing the most memorable music and songs ever written.  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. Just imagine the possibilities. Would one have outshone the other? Would their on stage banter have been friendly or a bit snippy?  The rapport of these two 20th century icons is immediately prevalent. What’s On magazine states, “As good as the music is, the banter between the stars is equally memorable.”
