One Night Only covers the extraordinary event of Ms. Streisand's first cabaret performance in 48 years. An absorbing dream-come-true you-are-there high definition audio-visual document of that evening, One Night Only - Barbra Streisand and Quartet at the Village Vanguard - September 26, 2009 immerses the home viewer in a tiny West Village nightclub, privy to the best sight lines and sound imaginable. The New York Times marvelled, "Concerts by Ms. Streisand are rare, but the scale of Saturday's show was exceptional enough to briefly upend the natural social order of celebrity events.... Ms. Streisand was booked for one night at the Vanguard - legal capacity 123, absurdly small for an artist who has sold over 71 million albums in the United States alone.... But outnumbering the boldface names were two busloads of ticket-lottery winners, ordinary fans from around the world. Some said they had never been able to afford a Streisand ticket before, but on this night they rubbed elbows with Oscar winners, The Secretary Of State and a former president...."
