Sunday, Funny Girl Oscar winner Barbra Streisand returns to the Tony Awards after what feels like a hundred years. In our hearts and imaginations her return will look something like this.
Today Queen Babs teased us (and finally bumped Hamilton from our social media feeds) with her first track off the Encores: Movie Partners Sing Broadway album, "At the Ballet" with with Anne Hathaway and Daisy Ridley. Get ready for the amazing dialogue—Also props to Babs for playing Sheila but taking the best part of the Maggie track.
Then there's the making of the track video, where Babs talks about directing the other two and makes a reference to the line from Funny Girl "can I roller skate?" so that's worth the click right there. (Also, is Daisy Ridley on the short list to play June or Louise in Gypsy?!?!)
Encores: Movie Partners Sing Broadway comes out August 26.
