"IT TAKES TWO" - A TRIBUTE TO THE GREAT SONGWRITING DUOS
It Takes Two – A Tribute to the Great Songwriting Duos
The creative team of Michelle Johnson and Jeff Neiman are back with "It Takes Two", their show celebrating timeless music from the great songwriting duos. The show features the music of Burt Bacharach & Hal David, George & Ira Gershwin, Alan & Marilyn Bergman. Carole King & Gerry Goffin, Paul McCartney & John Lennon and many more.
In a departure from their large productions featuring a full band and backup vocalists, this intimate, stripped down show featuring just piano and vocals will explore the music and the dynamics that come with being a team of two. Come out and enjoy an evening of music written by some of the best songwriting duos of our time, presented by two of the best creative forces in the cabaret format.
Michelle Johnson and Jeff Neiman are the creators of several best-selling shows that have delighted audiences and left people engaged and inspired. From their Carole King tribute "Tapestry Unraveled" to their popular "Salute to Singer-Songwriters" which celebrates the music of artists such as Elton John, James Taylor, Stevie Wonder, Joni Mitchell and Paul McCartney, their collaborations consistently sell out. Their unique and well received productions can be seen regularly at Myron's Cabaret Jazz at the Smith Center in Las Vegas, in addition to other venues.
