“Summer and Barbra truly go BEYOND impersonation, this is more than a tribute show. They truly become these icons when they are on stage. This is a completely live vocal show with dazzling visual effects, replica costumes, lots of laughs, storytelling, and songs of the past. It promises to give the audience everything they expect from a Garland and Streisand show and maybe even a little more than they didn’t even know they needed. This show invites the audience to be a part of the show and there are in fact moments that include audience participation. “ – Callmeadam.com as seen in The New York Times.
