"This show is smart, sophisticated and romantic." Times Square Chronicles
"These two are the perfect pair to celebrate the music of Astaire and Rogers. They are a treat to watch interacting and their voices blend beautifully together, telling the story of Rogers and Astaire with charm and wit." Cabaret Scenes
Two award-winning cabaret and concert performers, Karen Oberlin and Steve Ross - "the Crown Prince of Cabaret" - join formidable forces in their new show CHEEK TO CHEEK - The Songs of Astaire and Rogers.
In this charming show, Ross and Oberlin perform duets and solos from the iconic dance partners ten films, introducing many of the greatest songs by the Golden Age masters - the Gershwins, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Dorothy Fields, Jerome Kern, Johnny Mercer and more. Favourites such as "Let's Call the Whole Thing Off", "A Fine Romance", "A Foggy Day", "They Can't Take That Away From Me", "The Way You Look Tonight",as well as songs they sang alone and with other partners - such as Ginger's "We're In the Money" and "Embraceable You", which turned her into an overnight star (choreographed by none other than Fred Astaire!) and Fred's "Night and Day" and "Something's Gotta Give."
All of the great songwriters couldn't wait to write for this
incomparable pair and Karen Oberlin and Steve Ross bring this
glorious music to ebullient life. Their show evokes the style,
humour and charm that have kept Fred and Ginger known, loved and
admired since their first film appearance in "Flying Down to
Rio" more than 80 years ago. Karen Oberlin's Ginger is the
perfect match to Ross's Astaire.
