About this title

Synopsis:

Here is John Lahr--"the most intelligent and insightful writer on theatre today" (The New York Times)--at his trenchant best, reinventing the celebrity profile. Honky-Tonk Parade illuminates some of the compelling, elusive, and important artists of our time, who talk to Lahr with rare candor. His portraits weave together biography, anecdote, and shrewd interpretation. On the roster of greats are Dame Edna, Steve Buscemi, August Wilson, Cole Porter, Dame Judi Dench, Ang Lee, Billy Connolly, Kenneth Tynan, Yip Harburg, Mira Nair, Baz Luhrmann, Laurence Fishburne, Bill Hicks, Richard Rodgers, and Tony Kushner.

Honky-Tonk Parade, like the icons whose lives and work it so meticulously chronicles, corrupts an audience with pleasure.

From the Publisher:

From the distinguished New Yorker critic, a brilliant collection of essays about some of the most provocative cultural icons of our time.
