Barbra Not Performing For Obama...

Liz Smith has confirmed the following on her blog:

BARBRA STREISAND? You won't see her at any of the major inauguration functions - though she was most certainly asked to appear! But she and Diana Krall will watch the ceremonies from a recording studio in LA, where they're working feverishly on Barbra's new album. Diana is producing with her trio. They are toiling like crazy in a limited two-week time period that unfortunately coincides with Washington's festivities.

Barbra says she is happy she could do her LA fund-raiser for the president-to-be, and even though she won't be in DC on Tuesday, he knows her heart is there along with 300 million other Americans.

Important Info: YENTL Disc.

For those of you who pre-ordered Yentl using our $8.99 link page...

That page has now been removed from Amazon.com -- and if you want to pre-order the 2 disc set - you must use this page:


It looks like Amazon got early word about a one disc DVD set - which they were advertising for $8.99 -- but their supplier has told them that there is no such DVD.

So basically -- if you now want to receive the Yentl DVD - you must use the above link. They're doing it for $20.99 instead of $29.99 -- but you do get a LOT of extra / bonus material:.
