About the event:
Lou Reed: Caught Between the Twisted Stars, taken from a lyric from “Romeo Had Juliette” from Reed’s solo album, New York, will present previously unseen and unheard work of a prolific and uncompromising artist—songwriter, musician, performer, poet, photographer, and tai chi practitioner. The story is told through the voices, images, and music of Reed’s music projects; through his performances and theatre works; the articles, books, and poems that he
authored; his own photography; and his personal tai chi studies.
The show will pay tribute to the many friends and collaborators whom he influenced and who, in turn, shaped his own music.
