Richard Carpenter’s Close To You
Edinburgh Fringe 2017: An exciting new comedy musical show from one half of Frisky & Mannish
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 sweet sweet music from the smiliest, most gifted control freak in pop-rock history. Virtuosic renditions of the Carpenters’ catchiest tunes nestle amongst harrowing scenes of psychological torment in this new dark comedy written and performed by Matthew Floyd Jones, the piano player from Frisky & Mannish.
Independent on Frisky & Mannish
Guardian on Matthew Floyd Jones’ Cabariot
“Such a compelling performer.”
Exeunt on Matthew Floyd Jones
“A terrific lead.”
Time Out on Matthew Floyd Jones
THIS PARODY SHOW IS NOT AFFILIATED WITH RICHARD CARPENTER IN ANY WAY
IT IS A WORK OF FICTION INSPIRED BY HIS LEGACY AND INTENDED WITH LOVE
AND IF BIRDS SUDDENLY APPEAR, WELL THAT’S JUST A COINCIDENCE
