However, everything that can go wrong is and the opening night is quickly going from bad to disastrous.

December 5, 2018

Rufus Wainwright's lush, theatrical pop harks back to the traditions of Tin Pan Alley, cabaret and even opera. Son of Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle, brother to musical siblings Martha and Wainwright, songwriting is in his blood. He remains firmly out of their shadows though, with a folk legacy of his own that includes seven studio albums and a fully-fledged opera.
