Anne Hathaway

Barbra Streisand’s new album “Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway” enlists film talent and the result is dazzling. The first released single is  “At the Ballet,” with  Anne Hathaway and and Star Wars Daisy Ridley. Other tracks include Hugh Jackman, Antonio Banderas, Alec Baldwin, Chris Pine, Melissa McCarthy, Seth MacFarlane, Jamie Foxx and a virtual partnering with the late Anthony Newley. to create modern renditions of Broadway classics like “Any Moment Now” from Into the Woods or “Climb E’ry Mountain” from The Sound of Music.

 

 

In the footage we found on YouTube, a bare-faced, pregnant and radiant Hathaway, is described by Streisand as “When Anne came into the studio, I was so happy to see her looking radiant and glowing, no makeuo but with the beauty of a woman about to give birth to a child.”

Daisy Ridley was found while she was being interviewed for Gypsy.

There’s a tune from the film musical Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, based on Roald Dahl’s book (later adapted for the stage,and making its Broadway premiere with a revamped production next season); and the three Stephen Sondheim selections include one from Road Show, which ran off-Broadway, and another from Evening Primrose, originally written for television.
