BEARatones warm hearts with My Fuzzy Valentine

by Eric Andrews-Katz - SGN A&E Writer

My Fuzzy Valentine: We Have A [Heart] On 4 U
February 11-12
Erickson Theater Off Broadway


'Come on, bears! Let's put on a show!' Not quite the call from an MGM musical, but it may very well indeed be a Seattle interpretation. And just in time for Valentine's Day, the Seattle-based singing group of girth presents My Fuzzy Valentine: We Have A [Heart] On 4 U.

The singing quintet consists of Tony Gilkinson (founder), Steve Wolf, Clair Stevenson, Mike Krake, and Paul Bartholomew. As an added benefit, they will be accompanied by Christopher Smith on keyboards and will cover a wide variety of song styles. With the concert on Valentine's Day weekend, it should be easy to figure out the common theme of the show.

Big-hearted fun will be had during the two performances. Michael Krake and Steve Wolf will be playing cupids, spreading their loving message as they flitter about while the others sing 'The Shaft of Love.' Michael will also be singing about two lovesick penguins in 'Los Penguinos.' An updated version of the classic 'Masochism Tango' (originally written by Tom Lehrer) will be sung by Clair Stevenson, accompanied by (you guessed it!) tango-dancing bears. Paul Bartholomew sings 'Sarah Lee,' a Kander and Ebb love song about dedication to the one person who has always been at his side (or at least, his waist). The familiar complaint will be presented in song 'Fifteen Pounds Overweight,' as lamented by Tony Gilkinson. Accompanist Christopher Smith will lead the BEARatones in his own arrangement of 'My Funny Valentine.'

Tony Gilkinson founded the BEARatones den in 1996, while living in Salt Lake City. After relocating to Seattle, Tony held open auditions and eventually created the current BEARatones as of 2005. Since then, the fuzzy-hearted group has put its spin on everything they have touched. They have performed at the International Bear Rendezvous in San Francisco and the Northwest Bears Spring Thaw.

My Fuzzy Valentine: We Have A [Heart] On 4 U will be performed at the Erickson Theater Off Broadway (1524 Harvard Ave.). Discounted tickets ($18) can be purchased in advance online (http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/142708) or at the door (providing availability) for $25.
