Get Ready For A Special Night of Music and Theatre With Transformation with Glenn Close and Ted Nash

Transformation is an evening of (mostly) original music to be played by the Jazz At Lincoln Center orchestra, underscoring and highlighting the spoken word works chosen by Ms. Close fit into a theme for the evening. These literary works will be performed by an impressive lineup of people including actors Amy Irving, Wayne Brady, edgy downtown performer Justin Vivian Bond, producer Christian Slater, downtown performance artist Justin Vivian Bond, Tony Award-winning actress and singer Adriane Lenox and more will read and/or sing texts by Ted Hughes, Conrad Aiken, Edward O.
