RUFUS & MARTHA WAINWRIGHT’S NÖEL NIGHTS
RETURNS TO NEW YORK CITY TOWN HALL DECEMBER 17 + 18
First performed in 2005, this family show was the inspiration of the legendary musician and songwriter, Kate McGarrigle, who saw the concerts as a way to raise money and awareness about Sarcoma, the rare and underfunded cancer that took her life five years ago. Her children, family, friends and fellow musicians have continued the tradition and the fight, giving their time and their talents each year possible to present a spectacular show – a rich and varied Christmas stew. The New York Times has called the Wainwright/ McGarrigle Christmas show an “enactment of a family gathering: motley, full of overlapping agendas, a little sentimental, a little fractious but harmonious in the end.”
After a three-year hiatus from their hometowns Rufus and Martha Wainwright’s Noël Nights mark a grand holiday return to New York City, December 17 and 18 at Town Hall! The cherished holiday tradition features musical holiday-flavored performances from many members of the talented McGarrigle/Wainwright musical dynasty, including Rufus Wainwright, Martha Wainwright, Sloan Wainwright, Loudon Wainwright III and Lucy Wainwright Roche. Special guests include:
Justin Vivian Bond
Cyndi Lauper (Dec. 17 only!)
Renee Fleming (Dec 18 only!)
Tickets can be purchased here:
