Drink Tossed At Babs Skit

Barbra Streisand had a drink thrown at her during her show at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Fla., October 30th. The incident happened after the well-known skit where Streisand interacts with Steve Bridges, a President George W. Bush impersonator.

Streisand spokesman Dick Guttman said a paper cup filled with liquid was thrown on stage but did not hit Babs during her second performance at the 20,000-capacity arena. Streisand manager Martin Erlichman said she shrugged off the incident and responded with, “It’s a free country and they’re entitled to express their opinion.”

“This skit has been so massively covered by media, it’s impoissible that it still could come as a surprise to any of the bush admirers who bought tickets,” Erlichman said. “It stays in the show except for the few performances where Steve has a conflicting commitment.”

It’s at least the third time the skit has caused media attention. Streisand’s skit was heckled by an audience member at the tour launch in Philadelphia. The skit also irked an audience member at Madison Square Garden in New York City, which led to a blue remark by Babs.
