Happy Pride: Here Are Barbra Streisand And Anne Hathaway Slaying 'At The Ballet’

We are the luckiest people in the world.

Barbra Streisand knows her audience.

The "Funny Girl" announced last month that she is set to release her 35th studio album "Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway," as well as launch a 10-city North American tour. On Friday, she shared a behind-the-scenes look at the production of “At the Ballet” from "A Chorus Line," featuring vocals from Anne Hathaway and Daisy Ridley.

Streisand's third Broadway-inspired album promises to feature "Hollywood’s biggest stars to sing Broadway classics" -- and boy, has she delivered so far. (Hey, she's made it clear before: "People who need people are the luckiest people in the world.")

The classic show tune describes the experience of three dancers who are asked to recall their childhood trauma in the midst of an audition. Streisand lends her voice to the character of Sheila while Hathaway and Ridley embody Maggie and Bebe.

The Broadway legend also shared the cover of her album and its release date on social media Thursday. You know, just a totally casual Barbra in a negligee, looking over sheet music surrounded by bouquets of flowers.

What? Were you expecting something else? 

Take a listen to the full track below. 

The 2016 Tony Awards will air on CBS on Sunday, June 12, at 8 p.m. ET. From “Hamilton” to “Spring Awakening,” “Eclipsed” to “The Humans,” Sophie Okonedo to Leslie Odom Jr., check out our live coverage of all things Broadway on Twitter this weekend.
