“TV Guide declared Sharon one of “the best impersonators in the world,” said Marilynn A. Wick, Managing Executive Producer. “And when she takes the stage, she simply transforms into Streisand—the voice, the mannerisms, the banter—she has it all! Join us for a musical journey through 50 years of hits, from Streisand’s Broadway and film career through her mega-hit collaborations with Neil Diamond and Barry Gibb.”
Sharon Owens began her career as a Streisand Tribute in 1992 for the immensely popular “Legends in Concert.” This led to performances around the globe and a 10-year residence in Las Vegas at the Riviera in “Barbra and Frank: The Concert That Never Was.” This show was crowned “Best in Las Vegas” in 2008 and Owens was later awarded with “Vegas Entertainment Living Legends Award for Excellence in Entertainment.” On TV, she won the Fox TV competition show “Performing As…” in 2005 as well as making it to the finals of The Next Best Thing on ABC in 2007. She has also made a multitude of National Television appearances including Access Hollywood and Extra, as well as the Today show in both Australia and London.
