WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW – BEST OF BURT BACHARACH AT SIDENOTES CABARET
Syncopated rhythms, unique chord progressions and jazz harmonies will be front and center as SideNotes Cabaret presents WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW: A TRIBUTE TO BURT BACHARACH, March 30 to April 2, 2017 at Sunset Playhouse in Elm Grove. Highlighting a career that spans more than fifty years, vocalist CYNTHIA COBB and pianist/vocalist BRIAN MYERS will star in this exciting retrospective of Bacharach’s compositions.
As part of the professional SideNotes Cabaret Series, Cobb and Myers will be joined by drummer Jim Ryan to present four performances in the intimate, relaxed atmosphere of Sunset’s Studio Theater.

Known for their collaborations with Dionne Warwick, the Bacharach/David team also scored numerous successes with Perry Como, Dusty Springfield, Tom Jones, The Carpenters and other artists. The cabaret is written and directed by BECKY SPICE.

In addition to her many appearances with Skylight Theatre, she has performed at Candlelight Dinner Playhouse, Drury Lane Theatre, Marriott Theatre at Lincolnshire and Gateway Playhouse.
