The Carpenters Tribute

Direct from Las Vegas, starring Sally Olson as Karen Carpenter and Ned Mills as Richard Carpenter, the show is a re-creation of the Carpenters' 1976 live performances, featuring hits including “We’ve Only Just Begun,” “Yesterday Once More,” “Superstar,” Karen’s drum solo, Richard's classical piano feature, "Close To You," comedy antics and much more. 
​Randy Schmidt, author of Little Girl Blue: The Life of Karen Carpenter, says “Sally’s tribute to Karen Carpenter is heartfelt and honest,” and John Katsilometes of Las Vegas Review-Journal has lauded the show as “musically sound, vocally spot-on, and will please any fans of the duo.” 
Sally is truly unsurpassed in her startling representation of Karen Carpenter, including authentic hairstyles, vintage costumes, gestures, and stunning voice.
Carpenters Legacy features a powerful band with orchestra, historical commentary, lovely arrangements and video, taking audiences on an incredible journey down memory lane into the world of the Carpenters –
the world’s ONLY authentic Carpenters tribute in sight and sound.
