CLOSE TO YOU The Burt Bacharach Musical

Following a sensational season in New York and a sold-out run at the Menier Chocolate Factory, the phenomenal Close to You: Bacharach Reimagined now transfers to London’s West End.

Endorsed by Burt Bacharach himself, Close to You: Bacharach Reimagined is a vibrant celebration of Bacharach’s beloved songbook. First opening at the New York Theatre Workshop, this production was welcomed by standing ovations and rave reviews and went on to become the theatre’s longest-running show.

Led by exciting composer and performer Kyle Riabko, directed by Olivier-Award winning director Steven Hoggett (Once, The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night Time) and featuring an incredible group of young musicians, this celebrated show presents electrifying re-interpretations of thirty Bacharach favourites. Ingeniously blending the new and the old, Close to You: Bacharach Reimagined will introduce a new generation to Bacharach’s extraordinary body of work and will give those already devoted to the songster a wonderful opportunity to rediscover classic such as “I Say A Little Prayer”, “Walk On By” and “Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head.”

    This group of young artists were absolutely amazing. Brilliant songs with a twist on their original score all in all a fantastic show.

    Loved every minute of Close to You. Great songs and some done very different to the original ones.
