Broadway star Shoshana Bean, inspired by her idol, Barbra Streisand, makes her triumphant concert debut in New York City with a show that's not to be missed. In her starring roles in Wicked, Hairspray, and the off-broadway revival of Godspell, Shoshana proved herself a force of nature. Shoshana brings her evening of music to Columbus Circle, where audiences will enjoy many Streisand classics alongside Shoshana's original music from her debut album, Superhero as she seamlessly blends the classic with the contemporary. Musical direction by James Sampliner and directed by theater legend Billy Porter.

"A star turn unlike any other." - BroadwayWorld.com
"Bean seamlessly melded her own sultry style with a detail here and there that conjured fond memories of Streisand at her peak. The gracious and warm Bean managed to pay tribute to a great enertainer without ever once attempting mimickry. Yet it's easy to understand how La Streisand's confident, full-throttle delivery has influenced Bean's work." - Backstage
