Yentl Yen

If you have ever had a hankering for a stage version of the movie musical Yentl, you may be in luck: in a recent interview with, the film's Oscar-winning songwriters Alan and Marilyn Bergman mention that just such a project is in the works.

Of course, it is doubtful that Miss Stage Fright herself, Barbra Streisand (who won a Golden Globe for directing the film), would return to the role of a Jewish girl who disguises herself as a boy to enter religious training and ends up falling in love with her pal Mandy Patinkin but winds up married to Amy Irving (whew). Might I suggest a certain Broadway diva who could certainly belt out a mean "Papa, Can You Hear Me?": Linda Eder.

Oh, and by the way, Barbra: how about that Yentl DVD already?
