Burt & Me is a musical comedy featuring the incredible music of the legendary duo of Burt Bacharach & Hal David with book by Larry McKenna. Through a special arrangement with Burt Bacharach and the estate of Hal David for the use of twenty of their most popular songs, this show tells the story of Joe & Lacey, two high school sweethearts who share a love of basketball and the music of Burt Bacharach. When their paths cross several years later, Joe tries to rekindle their romance with the help of the one and only Burt Bacharach. The story is sweet, smart, and funny with music that is full of nostalgia and great arrangements.
