Kenward Elmslie appears in live performance in the sumptuous Knuth Hall music-theater at San Francisco State U., presenting a Retrospective Evening of Original Poetry and Song, accompanied by non pareil musical maestro Steven Taylor.

For four decades, Mr. Elmslie and his body of works (as librettist for Truman Capote's The Grass Harp, Strindberg's Miss Julie, Chekhov's The Seagull, et al., to poetry & song revues Postcards on Parade, 26 Bars, Lingoland) have graced stages Broadway to Bouwerie and Way Beyond.
