Mx Justin Vivian Bond joins us for six Mondays starting June 4th as V presents Silver Wells, an evening based on his newly released album of the same name, covering songs made famous by Ronee Blakley, Kate Bush, Leonard Cohen, Tracy Chapman, Joni Mitchell, Mark Eitzel and Brecht & Weill, among others. Silver Wells is inspired by - and takes it name from - Joan Didion’s 1970 novel Play It As It Lays. In the show, Bond chooses a group of songs that allow him to cover the book’s themes of nihilism, postmodernist identities, loss and the retrieval of memory. Mx Bond, an Obie, Bessie and Ethyl Eichelberger Award-winner, returns to midtown with this residency at 54 Below for the first time since V's legendary appearance on Broadway in the Tony Nominated Kiki and Herb: Alive on Broadway. This is a not to be missed event!
