Broadway's first Funny Girl, the legendary Barbra Streisand, made time in her busy schedule to check out the Tony-winning revival of Porgy and Bess on September 19. Streisand, along with friend and A-list fashion designer Donna Karan, enjoyed the Gershwins’ gorgeous score and the award-winning performance by Porgy and Bess’ leading lady Audra McDonald. After the curtain came down at the Richard Rodgers Theater, Streisand and Karan made their way backstage to congratulate the cast and hang out with McDonald and Tony nominees Norm Lewis and David Alan Grier. Lucky for us, Broadway.com was also on hand to capture the magic moment when the group came together in this exclusive photograph! Now, what are the chances during their brief time together that Audra and Babs discussed working on a duet? Check out the photo of Grier, Karan, Lewis, Streisand and McDonald, and head down to see this gorgeous revival before it closes on September 23.
