BWW Reviews: The Gamm's Sublime THE HOUSE OF BLUE LEAVES Surprises in Many WaysBWW Reviews: The Gamm's Sublime THE HOUSE OF BLUE LEAVES Surprises in Many Ways
by Robert Barossi - Mar 12, 2015

Backed by the newly-formed Downey CA Collective, Mr. Morton will perform songs made famous by the all-American jazz/pop duo Richard and Karen Carpenter. With songs from composers such as Burt Bacharach and Hal David, Paul Williams, Roger Nichols, Leon Russell, John Bettis and Richard Carpenter himself, I (Heart) THE CARPENTERS is fresh take - both extremely personal and totally universal - on mid-20th Century American pop genius, designed to be an emotional trip down memory lane for some and an exciting, memory-making first meeting for others. I (Heart) THE CARPENTERS will be performed on three consecutive Monday evenings in June: June 1st at 7 PM, June 8th at 9:30 PM, and June 15th @ 7 PM. There is a $45 cover charge and a $25 food and beverage minimum. Visit 54Below.com for tickets/reservations. (more...)
