Hot on the heels of it’s sold out Joe’s Pub debut, CLASSIC WHITNEY: ALIVE! is back by popular demand to the place where it all started! In CLASSIC WHITNEY, the legendary Whitney Houston has come back to earth, reincarnated in the body of Kevin Smith Kirkwood, to deliver a one night only retrospective concert and celebration of some of her iconic live performances. Here, Whitney is backed by a full band and back-up singers (who also play her mother Sissy Houston, brother Gary, and even Bobby Brown) and musical director Drew Wutke. With a script constructed from bits of her live concert banter, and re-enactments of her live concert musical arrangements, it’s the ultimate Whitney tribute from the ultimate Whitney fan!
