Friends of Barbra in association with Hayes Theatre Co present

Friends of Barbra: The Way We Weren't BARB Main

Starring Michael Smallwood, Luke Gallagher and Nigel Ubrihen


THE WAY WE WEREN’T introduces Friends of Barbra, Australia’s internationally renowned mega-cabaret boy-band hand-picked by Barbra Streisand herself to keep her music alive for generations to come. 

Nigel Ubrihien, Michael Smallwood and Luke Gallagher have been Friends of Barbra for nearly two decades, performing to sellout crowds in Melbourne, New York and Berlin. In addition to reviving Barbra’s iconic power duets, this award-winning trio breathes new life into classics by The Spice Girls, Luciano Pavarotti, The Brady Bunch, Kermit the Frog and many others.

The boys combine comic silliness with musical know-how wrapped up in exquisite arrangements by Nigel Ubrihien. No-one is beyond resuscitation in a Friends of Barbra show – least of all Ms. Streisand herself.


“The Friends of Barbra display an enviable musical ability combined with stylistic restraint. This show is sharp, warm and clever, and never overblown or crass.” - The Age

“This is great cabaret, skewering the enthusiasms that greet Barbra’s every move!”Time Out New York
