New York Theatre Workshop Artistic Director James C. Nicola and Managing Director Jeremy Blocker have announced a four-week extension of What's It All About? Bacharach Reimagined through Sunday, February 2, 2014. The run was initially scheduled to end on January 5, 2014.
The musical revue, featuring the work of popular contemporary composer Burt Bacharach (lyrics by Hal David), opened on December 5 to strong reviews and ticket sales. Bacharach’s hit songs fill the bill, including “Do You Know the Way to San Jose,” “I Say a Little Prayer,” “I'll Never Fall in Love Again,” “Walk on By,” “What the World Needs Now Is Love,” and many more. Kyle Riabko and David Lane Seltzer are credited as the show’s co-conceivers, with Riabko lending his musical arrangements.
Tony nominee Steven Hoggett (The Glass Menagerie) directs a cast that includes Daniel Bailen, Laura Dreyfuss, James Nathan Hopkins, Nathaly Lopez, James Williams, Daniel Woods, and Kyle Riabko himself.
