“Steven Brinberg is one of the most gifted impressionists in the world…not only is his singing voice the closest thing to Streisand’s…he is hilarious as well. A must-see.” The NY Times
“Brinberg’s uncanny..soprano is the next best thing to Streisand herself…He has mastered not only her mannerisms but her manner entire…Affectionate and wickedly funny."” Time Out New York
“When you first hear Steven's Simply Barbra CD, for the first brief moment, you almost think, 'My God! Is that really her?’” Marvin Hamlisch
STEVEN BRINBERG has been doing his live vocal and comic impression of Barbra Streisand for two decades around the world. The first SIMPLY BARBRA show began in his native New York where it ran for three years and has since played across the US, in London's West End, Dublin, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Sydney, Melbourne, Barcelona, Bangkok, Puerto Vallarta and Toronto - more cities than the real Barbra.
Steven spent 11 years touring with Marvin Hamlisch and his symphony orchestra as a special guest star. Stephen Sondheim requested his appearance at his birthday concert at the Library of Congress. Terrence McNally wrote narration for him to read as Barbra at a concert at Lincoln Center. He has also perfomed at special events for such notables as Donna Karan, Joan Rivers, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Liza Minnelli
The constantly updated SIMPLY BARBRA show has earned two MAC awards, a bistro award and was nominated for a 2018 ROBBY award for theatre and cabaret in Los Angeles. Off-Broadway Steven has appeared in IVANOV (Jewish Rep) THE WIND UP TOYS (Lambs Theatre) and Ken Page's Musical NIGHTLIFE at the Westbeth and Manhattan Theatre Club. He appeared on Broadway in the concert version of FUNNY GIRL, featuring Whoopi Goldberg and Kristin Chenoweth. TV appearances include BLUE BLOODS on CBS, Rosie O'Donnell, Jerry Springer, Sally Jessy Raphael and Good Day Australia Films include CAMP, HEAVENLY PEACE, BOYS LIFE and THIRSTY
