Wayne Koestenbaum is the Distinguished Professor of English at the City University of New York and an extraordinary cultural commentator and poet whose work spans Andy Warhol, Jackie O, the relationship between homosexuality and opera, and most recently, hotels. In what promises to be a memorable performance in The Space, he will reunite Liberace and Lana Turner, the stars of his book Hotel Theory, illustrating their imagined relationship with projected twinned images of the artworks of Hockney and Stark.
