Call it a happy accident of 19th-century design, but the Depot has terrific acoustics. Voices carry and fill the room without ever crowding it (though the whoosh of a passing train occasionally joins the chorus). Maybe that’s how we attract national touring artists as well as talented local performers.

Simply Streisand is a celebration of Ms. Barbra Streisand, her legendary career and the music she made famous. At Simply Streisand, you’ll hear tunes including melodies she belted out in the small nightclubs of Greenwich Village, to her 70's disco-infused period, straight through to the mega ballads that have come to define her work. Starring a stellar cast of Broadway voices as well as local favorites, think People, You Don’t Bring Me Flowers, Evergreen, The Way We Were and … to coincide with this special Hello, Dolly! anniversary, a heavy dose of the music she performed in the classic film from 20th Century Fox, in which the Depot Theatre is prominently featured.
