Barbra Comes Home!, 3 August 2014
Author: ( from United States

I wasn't born in 1968. After her success on Broadway and winning an Academy Award for her role in "Funny Girl," Barbra comes home to New York City and performs a concert in Central Park for about 150,000 viewers. This one hour special deserves to be seen by those die-hard Streisand fans and anybody who enjoys her immaculate voice. Streisand in 1968 isn't much different than today. Her hairstyle is a bouffant and her outfit is dated but the voice is still there. For an hour, she sings her songs with no props but the Central Park view behind her and an audience hanging on her every note. She is a perfectionist with an eye for detail. Even though the concert is short by today's standards, it is worth every minute of it.
