Let the melodic charm of the Crooners take hold!
Crooners for Spooners is a two hour musical experience inspired by Karen Carpenter’s coos over her Superstar, who ‘told me you loved me baby’ and Patsy Cline’s brave ‘walks after midnight.’
Crooners for Spooners is a collection of reactive swoons that reimagine the empty romantic antics of crooners past and present recreated in spaces where the lights are low and the energy electric.
