My View: Barbra Streisand Visits Mr. Finn’s Cabaret at Barrington Stage Co.

Recently Barbra Streisand came to the Friars Club for the naming of the Barbra Streisand Room on the 2nd floor of the Monastery.  Last night she visited Mr. Finn’s Cabaret at Barrington Stage Co. as one of Christine Pedi’s Great Dames in Ms. Pedi’s Award-Winning Cabaret Act.  Christine, the “lady of a 1000 voices” is usually heard as the host on the SiriusXM Broadway program daily from 9-3PM.  She most recently has been an Actor/Producer for the hit show Spamilton.  On Broadway she recently played Mama Morton in the 3rd longest running musical of all time CHICAGO.  The BSC audience got to be up close and personal with many celebrities last night including the wonderful character of Christine Pedi singing as Christine Pedi.  Mr. Finn need not worry, the sign on the room still says Mr. Finn’s Cabaret even though Barbra was in his club as one of Christine Pedi’s Great Dames.
