Review from marianne kuzmiak stickel

This event was filled with excellent talent. The acting, singing and costumes were exceptional. I am a former New Yorker and this one could have been on Broadway. Being a true fan of Bacharach, it was a worthy tribute to this Master. I shed a...continued

Review from Jon Olivan

We loved the event. Great music and lots of great singers. Our favorite muscian was Dave Koz.
We even rode down in the elevator with Burt Bacharach!

Review from Gilbert Simon

I wasn't aware that the production was a fund raiser with raffles and drawings and awards, etc. Those unexpected extras consumed much time and we left after the first act.
