There has been no shortage of opportunities to highlight a show by the great cabaret star Mx. Justin Vivian Bond, but this is the first time, to our knowledge, that the featured event is book-related. Mx. Bond's new memoir, Tango: My Childhood, Backwards and in High Heels, is a beautiful, breezy introduction to the youth experiences that created a downtown stage legend. At An Evening with Justin Vivian Bond, the Tony-nominee will discuss Tango with Mike Albo (author of The Junket), and, for old time's sake, sing a few songs.
