What The world needs Now-A Musical Tribute To Burt Bacharach
The musical revue, which is produced and directed by Ruth Condon, was originally presented at Cotuit Center for the Arts in March of 2014 and again in June of 2015. The show sold out every performance.
This past summer of 2016 we did a small summer tour across Cape Cod, bringing the show to several venues. “The audience—and the cast members—enjoyed it so much”.
The show has been a lifelong dream for Condon who is also performing in it, along with cast members, Cerise Bynoe a local jazz singer, singer-songwriter Jordan Renzi, pop & theater actress singer, Kristin Fehlau, and veteran theater performer, Anthony Teixeira.
Burt Bacharach has written 73 Top 40 hits, won six Grammy Awards and three Academy Awards, and is currently writing a Broadway musical with Elvis Costello based on the album “Painted by Memory” they created in the 1990s. His music is part of American culture.
The show features 29 songs written between 1958 and 1995, including “Walk on By,” ’” Alfie,” “The Look of Love,” and “This House is Empty Now,” a collaboration with Elvis Costello.
