Steven Brinberg skillfully harmonizes a Streisand tribute and parody as the star of Simply Barbra. Brinberg, a MAC- and Bistro-award winner, has toured England, Australia, and New Zealand with his masterful mimicry and uncanny ability to emulate Streisand's crooning, prompting Time Out New York to deem him "the next best thing to Streisand herself." Heighten the homage and hilarity with a complimentary handcrafted cocktail or signature specialty (up to an $8 value), such as the orange-mopolitan ($8)—starring Stoli Ohranj and backed up by a cranberry juice and Cointreau duet.
Actors Theater of Minnesota
Although it’s known for comedies such as the two-man, 24-character A Tuna Christmas, Actors Theater of Minnesota also places a significant emphasis on education and corporate training. At The Creative Institute, the ensemble trains students how to work theatrical media such as improv and writing into their everyday problem-solving skills.
