Downtown Cabaret Theatre - The Concert That Never Was

06/28/2013 to 06/29/2013

263 Golden Hill Street, Bridgeport, CT Phone: 203-576-1636.

It is unlikely that these two powerhouse voices of the century would have ever shared the same stage...until now! They never worked together, exactly, except when they recorded a duet in separate recording sessions. HOWEVER, it's tantalizing to think what it would have been like to have Barbra Streisand and Frank Sinatra get together for a concert tour. Imagine the possibilities. Would one have outshone the other? Would their onstage banter have been friendly or a bit snappy. Rapport between 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."  Friday, June 28 at 7:30pm and Saturday, June 29 at 5pm and Saturday, June 29 at 8pm. Reserved tickets for performances: $39 & $47
