There is an opportunity to immerse yourself in an enchanting evening featuring the musical brilliance of Richard and Karen Carpenter when the show Carpenters Gold comes to The Brindley Theatre, Runcorn on Sunday 26 May.
From Close to You, all of their chart-topping hits feature including Top of the World, We’ve Only Just Begun, Goodbye to Love, Please Mr Postman, For All We Know and Only Yesterday will be performed at the Halton Borough Council venue.
They are played and sung in a way The Carpenters did back in the day at the Talk of the Town, London Palladium or some of their International tours including Japan.
Indeed, West End star and director Vikki Holland-Bowyer not only perfectly emulates Karen’s legendary rich contralto, she even gets behind the drums!
Also, The Carpenters’ on stage light-hearted humour is captured perfectly as Greg Stevenson effortlessly recreates Richard’s sublime piano playing supported by a band oozing Seventies glitz.
When we were young we’d listen to the radio, waiting for our favourite songs – now we can enjoy them live, performed just how they would have been by the Carpenters during their heyday.
Carpenters Gold is heading your way – it’s Yesterday Once More.
Tickets are £25, £23 from www.thebrindley.org.uk and the box office on 0151 907 8360.
