Barbra Streisand stars in and makes her directorial debut (for which she won a Golden Globe) in Yentl, the musical film about a young Jewish woman in early 20th-century Poland who disguises herself as a man so she can defy tradition and continue her study of the Talmud. While at a Jewish religious school, she winds up in a romantic triangle with a fellow student (Mandy Patinkin) and his fiancée (Amy Irving). This groundbreaking exploration of religious and gender identity was adapted from Isaac Bashevis Singer's classic Yiddish short story, Yentl the Yeshiva Boy, and features an Oscar-winning score, including the memorable songs "Papa, Can You Hear Me?" and "The Way He Makes Me Feel."

The Cantor had a wonderful voice but Yiddish songs that I heard as a child were sung by ordinary people......so the words were more distinct and the melody more down to earth. There were at least three or four songs that I heard my Mother and Grandmother sing and that was most enjoyable. Overall a joyous evening of music. Thank you.
