Celebrate the legendary and heart-warming music of the Carpenters
The Carpenters were one of the most successful and cherished bands of all time. Recording some of the greatest love songs in pop music history, they captivated not one but three generations of fans. We’ve Only Just Begun, a moving music-filled performance, will celebrate and highlight the importance and impact of the band, their music and their stories.
Australian music theatre star, Angela Lumicisi’s spellbinding performance follows Karen Carpenter’s transformation from a little girl behind a drum kit to one of the brightest stars of the ’70s. While Karen was entertaining and inspiring the world, Angela was an Italian girl struggling with growing up in the confines of her traditional life in Melbourne. Karen and Angela’s lives begin to intertwine through their struggles and their loves as Angela finds the strength to be the person she’s always wanted to be. Karen’s soaring and heart wrenching vocals spoke to Angela, ‘It’s like you’re singing to me and know what I’m going through, how is that?’
