Matteo Lane: Streisand at the Bon Soir (in NYC)

In 1960 at age 19, Barbra Streisand was already making her mark in NYC, performing an array of jazz classics in between humorous musings and eccentric jokes. She was wacky, brilliant and beautiful and had a musical sensibility that was far too advanced for someone her age. Thankfully one of her shows was recorded, and lives on as “Barbra Streisand, Live at Bon Soir.” Intrigued by this recording, Matteo was inspired to recreate this set of music and bring it to Pangea with his own updated flavor and stylings. This show hopes to capture Barbra’s unique essence before she became a household name. Matteo has performed as a stand-up comedian all over the country and can also be seen on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and Netflix’s “The Comedy Lineup.” Music Director Henry Koperski is one of the most in-demand pianists in the NYC music/comedy circle and regularly performs with artists of stage, TV, and film all over the country.

New to streaming this week: 'The Suicide Squad,' 'Vivo' and Streisand

Here's a collection curated by the Associated Press' entertainment journalists of what's arriving on TV, streaming services and music platforms this week. • The 2016 David Ayer-directed "Suicide Squad" may have been rock bottom for Warner Bros.'s DC Comics universe, but the follow-up/rebuild by James Gunn might be a high point. Gunn's "The Suicide Squad," which debuts Friday in theaters and on HBO Max, barely alters the title of the previous film and preserves some characters (Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn, Viola Davis' Amanda Waller). But Gunn has brought an entirely new comic energy to the highly violent, R-rated comic book adaptation, along with the same surprising if demented poignancy Gunn showed to the two "Guardians of the Galaxy" movies. In "The Suicide Squad," Idris Elba leads a heartfelt if extreme gallery of damaged souls on a dangerous mission.
