“Beyond having a lovely voice, poise and interpretive insight… Ms. Oberlin has impeccable style and musical intelligence.” — New York Times
“Steve Ross is the Crown Prince of cabaret.” — New York Times
Karen Oberlin and Steve Ross, two award-winning cabaret and concert performers, join forces in a new show entitled Astaire and Rogers: Cheek to Cheek. Before coming together in this tour de force performance, Mr. Ross toasted Fred Astaire and Ms. Oberlin gave tribute to Ginger Rogers in I Won’t Dance: The Songs of Fred Astaire (York Theater) and the Ginger Rogers centennial celebration, respectively. Now, Fred has found his modern-day Ginger in this new concert celebrating the most beloved duo in celluloid history.
Mr. Ross and Ms. Oberlin will include duets and solos from Fred and Ginger’s ten films together, with songs from Golden Age masters Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, the Gershwins, Jerome Kern, and others. These masterful performers will bring to life such hits as “They Can’t Take That Away From Me,” “The Way You Look Tonight,” as well as Ginger’s “We’re In the Money” and “Embraceable You,” and Fred’s “Night and Day” and “Something’s Gotta Give.” Karen Oberlin and Steve Ross’s Astaire and Rogers: CHEEK TO CHEEK evokes the style, smarts and sass that have kept Fred and Ginger known and loved throughout the 20th century, 21st century, and beyond.
