Classic Whitney: Alive! In NYC

By Charlotte Robinson, July 07, 2017
Kevin Smith Kirkwood who is currently appearing on Broadway in the Tony Award-winning musical "Kinky Boots" will bring “Classic Whitney: Alive!” back to Joe’s Pub at The Public in NYC on Monday July 31st at 9:30P. After playing to packed houses at The Cutting Room & Joe’s Pub Kirkwood will again channel the voice, look & spirit of the late legend Whitney Houston with new songs & new costumes. Once again Whitney will ascend from the choir of heaven & inhabits the body of Kirkwood to perform renditions of special live concert arrangements of hits from the diva’s incredible catalog. The show was hailed by critics as pitch perfect, thrilling & raves that Kirkwood’s good-natured performance delivered Whitney at her best. Backed by a full band & three back-up singers who also play guests including her mother Cissy Houston, brother Gary & Bobby Brown, Kirkwood serves Whitney realness with a script that is constructed from excerpts of her live concert banter & interviews, “Classic Whitney: Alive!” is the ultimate Whitney tribute from the ultimate Whitney fan. Kevin Smith Kirkwood made his Broadway debut in the Tony Award winning musical "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee" & earned a 2005 New York Innovative Theater Award nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor for It’s "Karate, Kid!" Besides "Kinky Boots" Kirkwood currently stars as Roxy in the recently released feature horror film titled “Condemned”. (Photo by Preston Burford)
