Barbra at the opening night of Funny Girl at the Prince of Wales Theatre. April 13th, 1966.
As soon as she came off stage, Barbra was told she was pregnant.
“I’d been so involved in the show that I’d forgotten I’d given her a urine sample for a test. So there I was, standing there shaking people’s hands on opening night, with Rex Harrison congratulating me, and I felt like all the praise and congratulations were because I was pregnant. The exuberance I felt that night with this wonderful secret… I’ll never forget that.”
