Close your eyes for a moment and imagine that when you open them, right before your face, are the likes of Bette Midler, Tina Turner, Elvis, Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson.  Alright, that’s not exactly going to happen.  But thanks to the ingenuity of Bernard Kurz, you might be convinced you are seeing and hearing these legendary stars in their element:  on stage and performing just for you.

Bernard Kurz, an entrepreneur and impressario, has gathered the best celebrity look-alike and sound-alike artists in the business.  He’s been doing it for decades and now you are encouraged to the East Coast premiere of his acclaimed “Stars in Concert” at Bridgeport’s Downtown Cabaret Theatre on Friday, April 7 at 7:30 p.m. and again on Saturday, April 8 at 5 p.m and 8:15 p.m.

Rub your eyes and pinch your arm as you witness the clones of the originals perform their hits for your entertainment pleasure.  His stable of music greats number over three dozen and he rotates them regularly.  You may get to see the likes of a Cher or a Madonna, a Louis Armstrong or an Elton John.  Kurz has accumulated a shelf full of awards for his star-studded productions, including a Lifetime Achievement Award in Las Vegas in 2006.  As tribute shows go, this is among the best.
