Praised by The New Yorker for his “brilliant lyrics and music,” Todd Almond is one of musical theater’s most innovative contemporary voices. With an auteur skill set—he is a composer, lyricist, playwright, and performer—Almond has been lauded for his visionary collaborations with the Public Theater (The Tempest, The Winter’s Tale), playwrights Sarah Ruhl and Marcus Gardley, and singer-songwriter Matthew Sweet. Almond’s silvery voice brings brilliant sheen to lyric-driven melodies that open up vast wells of emotion. Here, Almond reconnects with director Lear deBessonet for a 360-degree tour of his music, featuring rock icon and Kansas City Choir Boy co-star Courtney Love.
