Is it Barbra or Sharon Owens? - Check her out!

Simply Exquisite!  Those are the only adequate words to describe the performance given this week, by Sharon Owens in the persona of Barbra Streisand.  Sharon appears in Jacksonville, Florida (north of her birthplace in Tampa), at the Alhambra Theatre and Dining, to a mature audience who loves the music of a popular songstress who has appeared in films, on stage and all over the world.  Sharon Owens IS Barbra Streisand and you still have an opportunity to experience the glamour and entertainment of “An Enchanted Evening with Barbra.

Sharon is always in the character of Barbra Streisand with her singing, speaking, impression, and dress.  It was so eerie when, during the second set, that Sharon transformed from Barbra to her REAL SELF.  She never left the stage and never removed her wig or clothing, yet she appeared to be a little different - right before your eyes.  Immediately after she answered some questions from the audience, Sharon went back to Barbra and continued singing, interacting with the crowd and giving a stellar show.  Take a moment to hear her HERE!

Sharon sings popular Streisand numbers as: “The Way We Were, Cry Me A River, Lover Come Back To Me, Second Hand Rose, Don’t Rain On My Parade, My Man, Hello Dolly, Guilty, Woman In Love, Evergreen, Enough Is Enough, You Don’t Bring Me Flowers, Main Event, Papa, Can You Hear Me?, A Piece of Sky, On A Clear Day, Stoney End, New York State Of Mind, I Finally Found Someone, Tell Him, My Yiddishe Momme, Somewhere, Happy Days and People.”  Besides the published song choices in the program, Sharon belted-out other popular songs from Ms Streisand’s repertoire.

Owens is backed by a great eight-piece local band.  Kudos go out to: Keyboardists - Jack Pierson & Rob Eccles; Bass - Stephen Rees; Guitar - Kyle Cohen; Drums - Joe Sacco; Trombone - Marc Dickman; Trumpet - Steve Strawley, and Saxophone - John Thomas; for giving the attendees a complementary night of professional sounds that was enjoyed by all.
