UnCovered: Queen & Bowie. Iconic pop songs reimagined by Canada’s top talent

“Under Pressure”, “Somebody to Love”, “Space Oddity”, “The Show Must Go On”, and “Changes”. Freddie Mercury and David Bowie each transformed the music landscape with their brilliant songwriting and fierce individuality. 

Experience music director Reza Jacobs’ wildly imaginative and theatrical arrangements as some of Canada’s greatest musical actors from Broadway, Mirvish, and the Stratford and Shaw Festivals bring their songs to life in a way that makes you hear them again for the first time.

Reza Jacobs’ musical direction is immaculate.

– The National Post

To get this much talent in one beautiful venue in one night and then use it as a corporate hosting opportunity… there’s not an event in the city that beats it.

– Jordan Banks Managing Director, Facebook Canada

Acting Up Stage Company’s annual Uncovered concert is my favourite event of the year.

– Lawrence Tepperman, Managing Director, K2 Digital
