What's New Pussycat?

Written by Tony winner Joe DiPietro (MEMPHIS, ALL SHOOK UP), the show, which features Tom Jones' beloved tunes, tells the story of the fictional character of the same name from Henry Fielding's 1749 comic novel, "The History of Tom Jones, a Foundling." In the show, Fielding's Tom Jones is now a singer from '60s London who resembles the iconic pop star. Says producer Flody Suarez, "There may be a little confusion. But believe me, it all makes sense and ties up very neatly."

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.

Multi-award winning Foothill Music Theatre presents Bullets Over Broadway The Musical, the Tony Award-nominated musical based on Woody Allen and Douglas McGrath's screenplay for the hit film Bullets over Broadway. A love letter to the golden age of Broadway, Bullets Over Broadway The Musical brings the classic musical comedy back with a bang. Loaded with the songs that made the 1920s roar, this splashy musical features Jazz Age standards including 'Let's Misbehave,' ''Tain't Nobody's Biz-ness If I Do,' "Tiger Rag," and 'Up a Lazy River.' In this madcap comedy, a young playwright finally gets his play produced on Broadway, but discovers there's a catch: the mobster putting up the funds wants a vehicle for his ditzy, talent-free girlfriend. Throw in an aging diva, dancing gangsters, and a bevy of beautiful chorus girls, and comedic capers ensue. Under the direction of Milissa Carey and music direction of Louis Lagalante, Bullets Over Broadway The Musical will play February 28- March 17, 2019 (press opening: March 1) with performances 7:30pm Thursdays, 8:00pm Todays & Saturdays, and 2pm Sundays at the Lohman Theatre, 12345 El Monte Rd (I-280 & El Monte Road), Los Altos Hills.
