 Preparing for her first Broadway star turn, Streisand explained to Jerome Weidman, the writer of I Can Get It for You Wholesale, why she’d changed her name. “I hapna love Brooklyn, but it’s like the name Barbara. Every day with the third “a” in the middle, you could go out of your mind. I mean, what are we here for? Every day the same thing? No change? No variety? Why get born? Every day the same thing, you might as well be dead. I’ve had 19 years of “Barbara” with three a’s and all my life born in Brooklyn. Enough is enough. Don’t you understand that?”
