Courtney Love and Todd Almond Coming to Town Hall in August
Rock and roll legend Courtney Love along with longtime collaborator, composer and playwright Todd Almond will take to the stage at Town Hall on Saturday, August 5 in an evening of conversation with writer Kevin Sessums as well as to perform selections from their new musical Kansas City Boys Choir. Billed as The Provincetown Sessions, the event is a sequel to a sold-out evening at the Curran Theatre on March 7, 2016 in San Francisco. At that event Love sang a cover of PJ Harvey’s “To Bring You My Love” as well as discussed their musical collaborations. That evening made news with special attention paid by SPIN and Rolling Stone magazines. The Provincetown Sessions promises to be an evening to remember.
