Long ago and oh so far away . . . the world fell in love with the Carpenters and their era-defining repertoire of songs.
We've Only Just Begun: Carpenters Remembered
is a celebration of the music of one of the most successful recording acts of all time, interwoven with the story of an ambitious and talented brother and his enigmatic sister with the golden voice.
Karen and Richard sold over 100 million records in just over a decade and still hold the record for the most top ten singles in a row. The combination of Karen’s voice and Richard’s compositions and arrangements created Grammy-winning magic.
The Show
Led by Michelle Berting Brett and accompanied by a live 7-piece band of versatile Nashville musicians directed by Harry Sharpe, We’ve Only Just Begun: Carpenters Remembered, re-creates their original sound. In addition Michelle shares stories culled from extensive research and interviews with those who knew Karen and Richard personally and professionally - a real "behind the scenes" of this pop music phenomenon.
The Music
The Show is available in a two-act or 90 minute format and features pop music classics that include: For All We Know, Goodbye to Love, Hurting Each Other, I Need to Be in Love, Please Mr. Postman, Rainy Days and Mondays, Superstar, There's a Kind of Hush, (They Long to Be) Close to You, Top of the World, We've Only Just Begun, Yesterday Once More, and many more!
