We Love You Rufus, Oh Yes We Do

The A.C.T. Young Conservatory once staged Mikhail Bulgakov's The Master and Margarita. We attended only because we were piqued that some kids were taking a swing at maybe the world's best novel. We went to see them fail, so we could be righteously pissy over our post-theater cocktail. We were severely disappointed: The "kids" were large teenagers, really, full-grown people, and dazzling in every way; full of talent, charm, chutzpah. It was a great adaptation. Thus, we can recommend Beautiful Child: The Music of Rufus Wainwright, even though the Young Conservatory has once again stepped on a sacred cow. As excited as we are to see the production (it's part of a series dedicated to songwriters), we're wondering just who-all thinks we'd want to hear anyone else sing Wainwright's songs. That post-theater cocktail is still on, you hear us, kids?
