Back to Back by Bacharach is a new biographic musical, devised and created by Graeme Davies and Jamie Moore, which celebrates the life and work of one of the world's most famous songwriters – Burt Bacharach. This two-act musical tells the story of Bacharach’s remarkable life and career, and features many songs from his enormous catalogue of hits… and some that weren’t. The show received its world première at the Sarah Thorne Memorial Theatre in Broadstairs, Kent on the 7th of September 2012 where it performed to the largest audience in the theatre's history, a record which still stands to this day.
