"Married now for over ten years, Broadway stars Lauren Kennedy and Alan Campbell form the ideal musical merger when onstage together — from giddy and light-hearted to powerful and poignant, from well-known hits from their Broadway musicals and pop-rock milestones to remarkably fresh, undiscovered gems from a whole new bounty of remarkable young composers and lyricists. The pair met in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Sunset Boulevard on Broadway; other notable shows include Spamalot and Les Misérables (Kennedy) and Contact and Beauty and The Beast (Campbell). Kennedy is a Raleigh native; the pair produce Raleigh’s 'Hot Summer Nights at the Kennedy.' 'It Takes Two' is an evening of perfectly-tuned, consummately entertaining, smooth-as-satin show biz panache — plopped smack-dab in the middle of a platter of real life. It’s diapers, left-over pizza, who’s taking care of the little one, does-this-dress-make-me-look-fat, can-you-just-shut-up-and-sing wonderful. And it’s as much fun as chocolate and champagne, iced tea and pimento cheese. Tickets on sale Sept. 28."
