Over four decades Barbra Streisand has reached the pinnacle of every art form she has encounted. As an actor she has made us laugh cry and care on Broadway and in film. As a musical performer she has dazzled us on stage and screen in arenas and concert halls and in recordings that have set record after record. All of these achievments making her one of the most beloved entertainers of our or any time. As award-winning director and producer of such films as Yentl and The Mirror Has Two faces she has met new challenges and scaled new heights. She is the first artist to earn a Grammy a Tony Award an Emmy and an Oscar. Perhaps that says it all.
