Barbara has appeared as a tribute artist for the one and only Joan Rivers at such venues as entertainment clubs, private parties, cruises, adult living communities and corporate events. Barbara is often sought after to perform as Joan Rivers while welcoming guests to events. The practice is known as "Meet & Greets".
Barbara has a range of talents including her two most popular shows as a singer, which are her Barbra Streisand Tribute and her Tribute to Broadway. She has performed these concerts in Palm Springs, Indio, Laguna Woods, California as well as many theaters in Florida to sold out audiences. The show "Tribute to Barbra Streisand" features songs from Funny Girl, The Way We Were, Yentl, Sunset Blvd. and many others. "The Tribute to Broadway" features well known tunes from Broadway shows such as Chicago, Hello Dolly, and La Cage Aux Folles. One of the best loved ballads in the act is the classic How Do you Keep the Music Playing which was written by Michel LeGrand and Marilyn and Alan Bergman and nominated for an Academy Award as "Best Song of the Year". Also included in this show, but not in the clip below, is a mini tribute to Barbra Streisand and lots of comedy interspersed into the act. Enjoy!
Barbara's show biz career started at the age of 11 in Boston where she began her studies in ballet, jazz, toe dancing and piano. Eventually she became a music major at the University of Florida where she studied voice.
Next, in New York, she landed a comedy lead in summer stock, later working in a whole string of Broadway musicals with such stars as Van Johnson, Chita Rivera, Gretchen Wyler, Molly Picon and many more.
The Concord, Raleigh, Kutchers and the Granite are some of the favorite resort areas where Barbara appeared in the Catskill Mountains. On the nightclub front she appeared at Caesars' Palace and the Desert Inn in Las Vegas, Nevada, as well as the Fountainbleau Hotel in Miami Beach, and the Copa and Latin Quarter in Tokyo. She also toured in Australia, Indonesia, South America and Canada.
Barbara is an exciting singer and complete performer who has now re-invented herself as a comedienne and tribute artist for “Joan Rivers” doing corporate events all over the country.
Barbara is blessed with a big musical comedy voice that can reach great distances with clarity and range. Her stage presence is dynamic and commanding. When she belts out a song, the audience melts. Seen on several television series and on some of the best musicals on Broadway, you will be delighted to watch her in action.
