Close To You: Bacharach Reimagined transferring to the West End!

What's It All About? Bacharach Reimagined is transferring to the West End following its run at the Menier Chocolate Factory.

The show will open at the Criterion Theatre on 15th October 2015 (previews from 3rd October) and is currently booking to 10th January 2016.

Co-creator Kyle Riabko (pictured) will continue to star in the show which is directed by Steven Hoggett. Further casting is yet to be confirmed. Tickets go on sale today (4th September) at 10am.

The show, which has been renamed Close To You: Bacharach Reimagined for its West End run, features Riabko’s thrillingly new yet beautifully faithful interpretations of Bacharach’s classics. It originally premiered at the New York Theatre Workshop where it became the longest running show in the theatre's history.

Blending nostalgia and innovation, generations old and new can now revel in all the hits as if for the very first time. The show redefines the songbook musical by fusing this extraordinary reinterpretation of over 30 timeless Bacharach melodies with innovative choreography, taking the audience on an emotional and exhilarating journey.
