Having triumphed in New York with rave reviews, the wildly successful celebration of Burt Bacharach’s songbook Close To You transfers to the heart of London’s West End.
The show premiered to critical acclaim at New York Theatre Workshop, original home of both Once and Rent, becoming the longest running show in the history of that theatre, followed recently by a sold out and highly acclaimed run at The Menier Chocolate Factory.
Directed by Olivier Award-winner Steven Hoggett, performed by a young group of multi-talented musicians and led by the visionary musician and performer Kyle Riabko, the show features thrillingly fresh yet beautifully faithful re-interpretations of Bacharach’s classic songs, blending nostalgia and innovation, so that generations young and old can discover the magic of Bacharach’s music as if for the very first time.
Close To You: Bacharach Reimagined comes complete with Bacharach’s official blessing, the great man himself declaring: “It’s a love letter and truly unique. I love it!”
Includes a 20 minute interval.
