Photo Coverage: Karen Oberlin & Steve Ross Bring CHEEK TO CHEEK to 54 Below
Two award-winning cabaret and concert performers, Karen Oberlin ("Beyond having a lovely voice, poise and interpretive insight... Ms. Oberlin has impeccable style and musical intelligence." New York Times) and Steve Ross (dubbed by the same newspaper "the Crown Prince of cabaret") join formidable forces in a new show entitled "CHEEK TO CHEEK - The Songs of Astaire and Rogers".
Steve's esteemed and celebrated show I WON'T DANCE: The Songs of Fred Astaire had a five-month Off-Broadway run at the York Theatre and was subsequently presented at Pizza On The Park in London, the Oak Room of the Algonquin Hotel and on tour in the USA and on the high seas aboard the QEII.
Karen's tribute to Ginger Rogers was presented for Ginger's centennial celebration, at the opening of Boston University's Museum's exhibition of Ginger's most treasured possessions. The sold-out concert was presented byAngela Lansbury and Nick Clooney. Since that special event, Karen's Ginger has been in search of the perfect Fred... the opportunity to combine forces with Steve Ross was irresistible. Who wouldn't want to celebrate in song the most beloved team in celluloid history?
