Burt Bacharach musical transfers to West End

Date Posted: 06/09/2015

Close to You, a new musical featuring the music of Burt Bacharach, is set to transfer to the Criterion Theatre in London’s West End on 3rd October. 

The show features musician Kyle Riabko’s new, but also faithful, interpretations of Bacharach’s classic hits. 

Close to You is classified as a ‘songbook musical’ along the lines of The Jersey Boys and Let It Be.

The show, newly renamed Close to You, was a smash hit at the New York Theatre Workshop, which was the original home of both Once and Rent.

Bacharach songs performed in the show include Anyone Who Had a Heart, I Say a Little Prayer, Magic Moments, The Look of Love, Walk on By, Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head and Close to You.

Close to You is currently booking until 10th January.
