PORCHSIDE FESTIVAL - Gabs Sings Babs
Approximate running time: 1 hour
57 St. Lawrence Street
Collingwood ON L9Y 4Y3
Starring Gabi Epstein with accompanist Mark Camilleri
In this intimate show multi-award winning stage and cabaret performer Gabi Epstein (“Gabs”) shares her own journey of self-discovery using reimagined rearranged versions of Barbra Streisand’s greatest hits. Best known for playing Audrey in Little Shop of Horrors at the Stratford Festival and Fanny Brice in Funny Girl both in Toronto and Montreal, Gabi honours her favourite performer in this part life story, part musical tribute by addressing themes of person vs. persona and influence vs. imitation as she explores the impact of "Babs"'s life on her own career and how much of herself she must preserve in order to remain authentically "Gabs". Audiences will enjoy new exciting versions of Don't Rain on My Parade, People, Papa Can You Hear Me, Happy Days are Here Again, The Way We Were, AND MORE! A touching, reflective, and (of course) FUNNY show "Gabs Sings Babs" reminds us to remain true to ourselves by celebrating what makes us unique.
