About Loudon Wainwright III
Loudon Wainwright III's one-man show, Surviving Twin, is a posthumous collaboration in which the Grammy Award winner connects some of his best songs with the writing of his late father Loudon Wainwright Jr, the esteemed LIFE Magazine columnist. Exploring issues from birth, loss and parenthood to fashion and pet ownership, the performance is a game of creative catch between son and father. Surviving Twin has never been performed in the UK.
Loudon’s illustrious career as a songwriter, humourist and actor spans over two dozen albums. He collaborated with Joe Henry on the music for Judd Apatow’s hit movie Knocked Up, penned music for the British theatrical adaptation of Carl Hiaasen’s novel Lucky You and also recorded several songs for HBO’s Boardwalk Empire.
As an actor, he hit the screens early in his career playing Captain Calvin Spalding, the “singing surgeon” on the American television show M*A*S*H, and he's subsequently appeared in films directed by Martin Scorsese, Tim Burton, Cameron Crowe and Judd Apatow.
“The sardonically humorous singer-songwriter delivers a moving meditation on father/son relationships.” – The Hollywood Reporter
“…a bristling, acerbic, ultimately affecting family album of a show, with father-son resentments, hostilities and resemblances laid out for all to see, alongside the love and self-loathing.” – New York Times
