Rufus Wainwright

13 years ago by Nate Cavalieri
Over the rumble of kettle drums, farty blasts of trombone and kid sis Martha's wailing—quite literally—about "fire and brimstone," Rufus Wainwright repeats a straightforward question on Release the Stars' opening number: "Do I disappoint you?" Oh, silly Rufus, it's not that you disappoint so much as you exhaust. Three friggin'...

Tori Amos, Rufus Wainwright

18 years ago by Robert Wilonsky
The most beloved album of 2001--and rarely has a release received so much across-the-board praise, at least one without a $100 bill slipped inside--is also the most baffling.

Rufus Wainwright: "If You're Getting Only Good Press, Something's Wrong"

7 years ago by Katie Womack
Rufus Wainwright's music is hard to categorize. It's not really pop music because too often it lacks the kind of simple catchy hooks that make for great radio fodder. He composed an opera and has set Shakespearian sonnets to music, but you can't really define him as a classical composer...

Dallas Theater Center stages a lavish Henry IV (with a touch of Rufus Wainwright).

9 years ago by Elaine Liner
What Hamlet says about mothers and sons, Henry IV says about fathers (and father figures) and sons. Shakespeare's drama about medieval kings, now getting a handsome, if gimmick-strewn, production at Dallas Theater Center, presents a troubled royal son, Hal, the Prince of Wales, and his uneasy relationships with his father...
