Barbra Streisand’s writers are hard at work

HollywoodNews.com: Songwriting greats Alan and Marilyn Bergman aren’t taking much time to bask in the glow of Barbra Streisand’s widely-praised new “What Matters Most” tribute album of their songs. They’re in the midst of working on a new version of “Queen of the Stardust Ballroom.” The Emmy-winning television movie, about a lonely widow who finds love with a postal worker, was transformed into the Broadway musical (ital.) Ballroom (end ital.) in 1978, with songs by the Bergmans and Billy Goldenberg. Now it’s being planned as a Broadway vehicle for Tyne Daly, with revamping including, says Alan, “five or six new songs” — “at least,” adds Marilyn — on which they’re collaborating with Marvin Hamlisch.

“We love to work with Marvin. He’s a great composer and great fun to write with. He’s funny. He’s so enthusiastic,” notes Marilyn.

When will the show get going? “As soon as we’re finished,” says Alan with a laugh.
The Oscar, Emmy and Grammy award-winning couple, who’ve been contributing to the Great American Songbook for more than 50 years, have also been meeting this week with another favorite collaborator, Michel Legrand. He flew in from France to discuss a new project.
