A sensational tribute to Sinatra and Streisand. It is un- likely that the two powerhouse voices of the century would have ever shared the same stage ... until nowl They never worked together, exactly, ex- cept when they taped a duet in sepa- rate recording sessions, but it's tan- tallzing to think what it would have been like to have Barbra Streisand and Frank Sinatra teamed up for a concert tour. Just imagine the possi- bilities. Would one have outshone the other? Would their on stage ban- ter have been friendly or a bit snippy? The rapport of these two 20th century icons is immediately prevalent. What's On magazine states, "As good as the music is, the banter between the stars is equally memorable." Attractive dis- counts for groups of 10 or more.

MAN IN THE STREET: BOS- TON PHOTOGRAPHS BY JULES AARONS - When Jules Aarons be- gan photographing seriously in 1947, he chose the streets and neighbor- hoods of Boston as his subject.

Inspired by "street pho- tographers" such as Henri Cartier- Bresson and Helen Levitt, Aarons worked solidly in that tradition, find- ing a steady supply of visual inspira- tion in the juxtaposition of people against their urban background.
