BWW Interview: Kyle Riabko of CLOSE TO YOU: BACHARACH REIMAGINED at Cabaret 313 is Something Different for Detroit!
by Katie Laban - Oct 27, 2017

Cabaret 313 is presenting multi-talented artist Kyle Riabko for two one-night only performances of his Burt Bacharach themed show, Close to You: Bacharach Reimagined on Saturday, October 28th at the Black Box Theatre at the Detroit Opera House in Detroit. The main thing is I pack thirty-five songs into about an hour and twenty minutes, and you start to realize just how many hits Burt has written that you know such as 'Close to You,' 'Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head,' 'Say a Little Prayer,' and 'And Something There to Remind Me.' The list just goes on and on and on, said Kyle Riabko. It's really a journey through the music and career of Burt Bacharach, but it will also appeal to the people who grew up, like I did, not listening to him, but to Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page and that kind of stuff because I play it from a guitar player's point of view.

BWW Preview: Eastern Bridge's THE STORY OF TWO POETS Comes to Philadelphia
by Kristen Morale - Nov 5, 2017

Returning for this special performance after it marked Eastern Bridge's New York debut, The Story of Two Poets is the theatrical adaptation of Listy na wyczerpanym papierze ( The Letters on Depleted Paper ), a collection of love letters and poems written during what can only be described as a fairy-tale romance which began in 1964. Osiecka, who wrote the lyrics for many of Poland's most popular songs and Przybora, who created the notable Elderly Gentlemen's Cabaret, sent many secret correspondences to each other over the course of their two-year romance; this would have remained a secret, had their children not discovered their letters. In 2010, Agata Passent and Kot Przybora published Listy na wyczerpanym papierze and gave new life to this beautiful relationship that Eastern Bridge now presents to audiences. (more...)
