Barbra's Special Part Two!
3 August 2014 | by SylSee all my reviews

Barbra Streisand shows off her singing talents in this unique special. The first twenty minutes is Barbra in a plain long dress from another century running around the Art Museum in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania years before Rocky climbed those steps. This is her second special and she takes center stage. She sings and changes costumes while looking at the art in the museum. The second part is Barbra with her beloved dog, Sadie. She sings songs for and with the animals more like a zoo than a circus. The animals including a tiger, a kitten, penguins, and more. The final segment is Barbra singing to an audience in color. Well this special is all in color unlike the first one. If there is a complaint, the special is too short.
