The Look of Love

I've gotten used to seeing Ali Harper with a different show every couple of years at Circa, her talent never disappoints. Her most recent offering is The Look of Love a review of the music of Burt Bacharach. Does the name sound familiar? The music will too, the show is filled with instantly recognisable hits.

Ali's beautiful voice was backed by almost seamless recorded accompaniment and her on stage pianist Tom LcLeod, and guitarist Callum Allardice. Callum showed hints of embarrassment as Ali flirted with him and Tom even managed to sing at one point. 

The audience was a touch older than I'm used to seeing on opening nights, they were reluctant to participate in the performance till right at the end when the show was closed with a standing ovation.

Performances: 23 January – 20 February (times vary)

Tickets: $52
