SPOTTED: Singing legend Barbra Streisand, meeting with lawmakers including Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) on Wednesday to talk about women’s heart disease.
The “Funny Girl” star, who founded the Barbra Streisand Women’s Heart Center at the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute in Los Angeles in 2012, made the trip to Capitol Hill to urge Congress to expand existing women’s heart health initiatives and to push for additional research funding.
Heart disease kills more women than all cancers combined, according to Cedars-Sinai.
We hear Barbra Streisand, a longtime Democratic donor, was “determined to make this trip completely bipartisan,” meeting with a group of female senators and House members from both political parties.
“The fact is a woman’s heart is different from a man’s, yet women’s hearts are under-researched, go untreated, and are misdiagnosed,” Streisand said in a statement. “Together, we can change that.”

It has been 50 years since Barbra Streisand portrayed Fanny Brice in the 1964 Broadway stage production of Funny Girl, and 46 years since she reprised her critically acclaimed role for the 1968 feature film.
The Gold-certified Funny Girl: Original Broadway Cast Recording is now packaged in a 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition boxed set with a digitally remastered CD and vinyl LP, as well as a 48-page book featuring exclusive photos from the production and a new essay by Jay Landers.
With music by Jule Styne and lyrics by Bob Merrill, Funny Girl was produced by Ray Stark, directed by Garson Kanin, and choreographed by Carol Haney under the supervision of Jerome Robbins. In addition to Streisand, the show's original cast included Sydney Chaplin, Kay Medford, Danny Meehan, Jean Stapleton, and Lainie Kazan, who also served as Streisand's understudy. The production earned rave reviews and eight Tony® Award nominations, in every major category.

Funny Girl Broadway Cast Recording 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition Box Set Hits Stores TODAY, and we have a sneak peek at the liner notes that accompany the set:
Some high-buttoned shoes are simply too big to fill.
In the 50 years since Barbra Streisand first inhabited the character of Fanny Brice, her association with Funny Girl (on stage and screen) has become so indelibly etched in our collective memories that any actress who's attempted to play the role since, inevitably pales by comparison.
This deluxe edition of Funny Girl 's original cast album, not only celebrates a history-making Broadway show, it also reminds us of a time, albeit a transitional one, when the Great White Way was still the musical locomotive delivering endless supplies of hit show tunes the whole world could hum. Although courtesy of the Beatles, rock 'n' roll was suddenly emerging from its post-army Elvis stupor, Broadway musicals (and their resultant movie-musicals) continued to reign as the most dependable provider of quality songs.
