ROBINSON THEATRE 617 Lexington St., Waltham, MA BARBRA & FRANK THE CON- CERT THAT NEVER WAS- May 22, 2010 at 2PM. A SensaUonal Tribute to Sinatra and Streisand It is unlikely that the two powerhouse voices of the century would have ever shared the same stage ... until nowl They never worked together, exactly, except when they taped a duet in separate record- ing sessions, but it's tantalizing to think what it would have been like to have Barbra Streisand and Frank Sinatra teamed up for a concert tour. Just imagine the possibilities. Would one have outshone the other? Would their on stage banter have been friendly or a bit snippy? The rapport of these two 20th century icons is imme- diately prevalent. What's On magazine states, "As good as the music is, the banter between the stars is equally memorable."
