An Evening with Justin Vivian Bond
Leonard Nimoy Thalia at Symphony Space
Thalia Book Club
The Tony-nominated cabaret legend performs songs and speaks candidly with writer and performer Mike Albo about the novella-length memoir Tango: My Childhood, Backwards and in High Heels. With simplicity, humor, and compassion Bond raises issues about LGBTQ adolescence, homophobia, parenting, and sexuality, while being utterly entertaining.
"Bond's fabulosity is matched by a trenchant wit, and [V's] over-the-top stories are smartly edged with politics, sexual or otherwise."-The New York Times
"The greatest cabaret artist of [V's] generation" --The New Yorker
