Laurie Anderson is a singer-songwriter of crushing poignancy—a minimalist painter of melancholy moods who addresses universal themes in the vernacular of the commonplace. -- Rolling Stone
One of America’s most renowned creative pioneers, Laurie Anderson delicately explores the inextricable link between the past, present, and future through custom-curated songs and stories for this tailor-made evening of music. Lacing together a sonic landscape of electronics, voice, and violin along with her signature surrealism, she captures an irreverent snapshot of the American Now and “continues to imbue her work with a singular perspective that is both haunting and timeless” (New York Times). Onstage at the historic Fitzgerald Theater, Anderson coalesces the ephemeral and the nostalgic in a truly extraordinary performance.
