Garrison Keillor Welcomes Elvis Costello To A Prairie Home Companion's Town Hall Shows



Keillor Welcomes Costello To A Prairie Home Companion's Town Hall Shows, December 3rd and 4th 


(NEW YORK)   Garrison Keillor and crew are heading into a six-show run in New York at The Town Hall (West 43rd Street between 6th Avenue and Broadway).


While tickets for the regular APHC live broadcasts on December 4, 11, and 18 at 5:45 p.m. are all but gone, there are still great seats available for three nonbroadcast performances — all the fun, without the clock — on December 3, 10, and 17 at 8:00 p.m.


On Friday, December 3 (and Saturday, December 4), Garrison welcomes Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Elvis Costello and Dublin-born guitarist John Doyle. Actress Sue Scott, Tim Russell (the man of many voices), and sound-effects wizard Fred Newman will be on hand as usual, along with the Guy’s All-Star Shoe Band, led by pianist Rich Dworsky. And as always, there’s a chance to catch up on the news from Lake Wobegon during Keillor’s signature monologue. 

Currently in its 37th season, A Prairie Home Companion has made the fictional small town of Lake Wobegon part of American popular culture. The show is broadcast on close to 600 public radio stations nationwide, with a weekly audience that tops 4.3 million listeners. The program can also be heard on the Armed Forces Network Europe, the Far East Network, and in dozens of European cities via the Astra satellite network.
