Elvis Costello – How to Play the Guitar and Y:
Premiere Date: September 16, 2021
Costello’s literary and musical brilliance are on full display in this utterly immersive, unrelentingly playful audio-work of comedic philosophy. Part masterclass, part madcap guitar-manual – in this show, the ‘little hands of concrete’ himself delivers a love letter to the guitar, to music, and to the restorative power of “play.” Listen, and you may just find success, like summer, is just a swallow away.
