“Oh yes, my dearies, this isn’t a dream. It really is I, Barbra Streisand. And if you’re going to squirt out of excitement, please do it the other way. This pilgrim minister couture didn’t come cheap.”
It’s been 46 long years since Barbra Streisand has graciously bestowed her star power upon the second gloriously gayest event of the year (the first being WrestleMania, of course). The last time Barbra was at the Tonys was in 1970 and they gave her the Star of the Decade award. Strangely enough, Barbra wasn’t at the Tonys last night to receive the STAH OF THE MILLENNIUM award. Barbra was there because she’s got a new Broadway album to push, so she presented an award.
There’s a good reason for why Barbra did herself up in Founding Fathers drag. She presented the award for Best Musical and even my damn dog knew Hamilton was going to win, so Barbra dressed for the occasion.
Seriously, Barbra showing up to the Tonys is like Charlotte McKinney showing up to a straight guy’s Super Bowl viewing party in edible bikini bottoms made of hot wings and a beer bra filled with Budweiser. (I know, I really know straight guys.) I’m not that huge of a Barbra Streisand fangay (I’m more of a Roslyn Kind kind of trick) and even I got a little excited. John Travolta probably cleared his schedule in advance, because he knew he’d need a lot of time to recover from this historic event!
And here’s more of Babs giving you “Jocelyn Wildenstein as Reverend Henry Kane” glamour at the Tonys last night.
