Delaware Valley Arts Alliance presents the world premiere of “Standards & Classics & Starsky (No Hutch)” starring singer and songwriter David Driver on Saturday, May 12 at 8 pm at the Tusten Theatre, 210 Bridge Street, Narrowsburg, NY.
The freewheeling multimedia performance riffs on Driver’s childhood obsession with the character of Detective David Starsky from the 1970s TV show “Starsky & Hutch.”
Through video projection, new music and American standards (from Rodgers and Hart to Duran Duran), Driver will explore his fascination with Starsky, and the actor who portrayed him, during a period when he was questioning his own survival as a young gay man.
Accompanying Driver are acclaimed multi-instrumentalists and composers Dana Lyn (Lincoln Center, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Carnegie Hall) and Matt Kanelos (“The Smooth Maria,” “We the Gleaners”).
The show features new material written with Heidi Rodewald, co-writer of the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical “Passing Strange” as well as the new music theatre piece ‘The Good Swimmer,” which will feature Driver when it premieres at Brooklyn Academy of Music’s 2018 NEXT WAVE Festival.
