Barbra Streisand

Barbra Streisand

The immensely talented trailblazer Barbra Streisand has done it all. She co-directed and co-produced Yentl (1983), in which she both acted and sang in the star role as a young woman who so loved studying the Talmud that she assumed a male identity in order to attend a yeshivah.
