Car­pen­ters Story head­ing to the stage

Runcorn & Widnes Weekly News - - The Guide -

THE Car­pen­ters Story comes to The Brind­ley The­atre in Run­corn later this month.

With back­ing from Richard Car­pen­ter him­self, who called it ‘a very ac­cu­rate por­trayal, I’m very flat­tered’, the con­cert-style pro­duc­tion cel­e­brates the mu­sic of one of pop’s most suc­cess­ful duos Richard and Karen Car­pen­ter.

Cre­ated in 1986 by Phil Aldridge, The Car­pen­ters Story was one of the UK’s first trib­ute shows of its kind.

More than three decades later the show has stood the test of time, hav­ing en­ter­tained sell-out au­di­ences through­out Europe and the rest of the world.

A Brind­ley spokesman said: “Ac­claimed in­ter­na­tional star Claire Fur­ley re­mains un­sur­passed in her un­canny rep­re­sen­ta­tion of Karen Car­pen­ter.

“Her stun­ning vo­cal har­monies, com­bined with state of the art video pro­jec­tion and lav­ish mu­si­cal ar­range­ments, will take you on an in­cred­i­ble jour­ney through the unique­ness that truly was The Car­pen­ters, fea­tur­ing all the time­less clas­sics, in­clud­ing Su­per­star, Close To You, We’ve Only Just Be­gun, Yes­ter­day Once More, Top Of The World, Please Mr Post­man, Rainy Days And Mon­days and many more.”
