Tony Nominee Euan Morton Bringing I (HEART) THE CARPENTERS to 54 Below in JuneTony Nominee Euan Morton Bringing I (HEART) THE CARPENTERS to 54 Below in June
by BWW News Desk - Mar 2, 2015

Following a sold-out 2013 debut at 54 Below, Tony Award nominee Euan Morton returns to the acclaimed Manhattan nightspot to launch his newest project, I (Heart) THE CARPENTERS. 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...)
