    Theatrical Outfit Presents: "The Way We Were"

    The Molly Blank Concert Series is back at the Breman! For the past three years for this concert series, Theatrical Outfit has developed one night only shows that tell the story of Jewish composers who played a crucial role in the development of the American songbook. Behind every star there is a talented team who rarely see the spotlight. This year, we are peeking behind none other than Barbra Streisand to explore the fascinating lives of Alan and Marilyn Bergman. The Bergmans have been writing songs for over five decades, and have won numerous awards, including 16 Academy Award nominations, multiple Emmys, Grammys, and three Oscars for “The Windmills of Your Mind,” “The Way We Were,” and the score for “Yentl.”
