Kyle Riabko, star and creator of the West End show Close to You: Bacharach Reimagined and the earlier Off-Broadway version What’s it All About? Bacharach Reimagined, will bring his Bacharach arrangements back to Joe’s Pub.
Riabko will offer shows February 15, 2017, at 7 PM, and February 18 at 9:30 PM. For more information and tickets, visit JoesPub.com. He will accompany himself on guitar to titles such as “Alfie,” “I Say A Little Prayer,” “Walk On By,” “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ On My Head,” and more.
Close to You: Bacharach Reimagined, now available on Spotify, “revitalizes the catalog of the iconic American composer for a new generation with Riabko’s visionary interpretations on the genre-spanning catalogue of Burt Bacharach, with lyrics by Hal David and others,” according to press notes. The album also features special bonus tracks of Riabko’s never-before-heard original demos, which formed the basis for the project.
Close to You: Bacharach Reimagined is produced and arranged by Riabko with David Lane Seltzer of Entertainment 360 serving as executive producer. To order, click here.

Riabko has been seen on Broadway in Spring Awakening and Hair.
