BARBRA STREISAND: HOLIDAY MEMORIES
DECEMBER 21 @ 8:00 PM
“The next best thing to seeing Streisand herself.” -New York Post
“The next best thing to seeing Streisand herself” is how the New York Post described Carla DelVillaggio. She is a multiple-award winning tribute artist, who has entertained across the country from Miami to Las Vegas to New York City. Don’t miss this internationally known, award-winning celebrity impersonator, as she brings her brilliant Streisand tribute to the Delray Beach Playhouse just in time to celebrate the holidays!
HOLIDAY MEMORIES will feature many of the songs found on Streisand’s two holiday albums, including her singular rendition of “Jingle Bells,” as only Streisand can sing it, along with the beautiful songs of the season. Ms DelVillaggio will perform songs from the extensive Streisand songbook, including “The Way We Were,” “People,””Evergreen,” “Somewhere,” “Don’t Rain on My Parade,” “Memory,” “Second Hand Rose” “Woman In Love,” “Guilty” and many more.
Described as “funny,” “charismatic,” “can improvise on the spot,” “creates the perfect illusion as Streisand,” “has Streisand’s signature phrasing, timing and vocal mannerisms”… critics continue to rave about Carla DelVillagio’s performances. She has earned many prestigious industry awards, including: “Best Overall Celebrity Recreation, Agent’s Best Impressed Award” and the “Bea Fogelman Award of Excellence” – to name a few.
From the hair, down to the trademark nails, and wearing meticulously detailed replicas of iconic concert gowns, she is “Simply Streisand” in every way. Carla’s jaw-dropping recreation evokes the excitement and high energy vocals of Streisand’s most powerful numbers, as well as the beauty and purity of sound essential for the ballads so closely associated with this greatest of all singing actresses. Her keen sense of comedic timing, and ability to ad-lib, add to the overall illusion of portraying the original “Funny Girl.”
“[DelVillagio] demonstrated a spooky ability to channel the icon, at times you would swear you were seeing a hologram of a teenage Streisand.” -Simply-Showbiz (NYC)
She has entertained at theatres, performing arts centers, private parties and corporate events, benefits and fundraisers, Synagogues, Jewish Community Centers, and Adult Communities, all over the country, and has performed several times on the Legends Stage, at the Imperial Palace in Las Vegas.
