Richard Carpenter’s Close To You

A Work in Progress Gig

He used to be on top of the world looking down on creation, to the left of (and slightly behind) Karen. Now Richard Carpenter is back, and solitaire’s the only game in town. So… where do we go from here?

Get your ticket to ride for an epic concert of catchy Carpenters hits and harrowing psychological trauma from the smiliest piano player in pop-rock history. A dark comedy, brimming with classic tunes, telling the tragic tale of the ultimate control freak.
