Carla DelVillaggio Live

Don’t miss this internationally known, award-winning celebrity impersonator, as she brings her brilliant Streisand tribute to the Mizner Park Cultural Center just in time to celebrate the holidays!

HOLIDAY MEMORIES will feature many of the songs found on Streisand’s two holiday albums, including her singular rendition of “Jingle Bells” , as only Streisand can sing it, along with the beautiful songs of the season. Ms. DelVillaggio will perform songs from the extensive Streisand songbook, including “The Way We Were” ,“People”, “Evergreen”, “Somewhere” ,“Don’t Rain on My Parade”, “Memory”, “Second Hand Rose”, “Woman In Love,” “Guilty” and many more.

From the hair, down to the trademark nails, and wearing meticulously detailed replicas of iconic concert gowns, she is “Simply Streisand” in every way. Carla’s jaw-dropping recreation evokes the excitement and high energy vocals of Streisand’s most powerful numbers, as well as the beauty and purity of sound essential for the ballads so closely associated with this greatest of all singing actresses. Her keen sense of comedic timing, and ability to ad-lib, add to the overall illusion of portraying the original “Funny Girl.”
