Loudon Wainwright III Announces “Surviving Twin” Dates

If you’ve caught him on his current UK tour (or indeed the Andrew Marr Show yesterday) you’ll know that “Surviving Twin” is a posthumous collaboration in which Grammy Award winner Loudon Wainwright III connects some of his best songs with the writing of his late father Loudon Wainwright Jr, the long-standing LIFE Magazine columnist. The performance, never previously put on in the UK, is pitched as “a game of creative catch between son and father, exploring issues like birth, loss, parenthood, fashion, pet ownership, and mortality.” 

The show runs for 4 nights (with one matinee) at London’s Leicester Square Theatre from 9-12 March 2017.  You can buy tickets which are on sale now here. In the meantime, watch his video below for his very Loudon take on this year’s US election.
