The concerts are billed as "a journey through the poetry of Charles Bukowski from the books 'The Last Night of the Earth Poems,' 'What Matters Most Is How Well You Walk through the Fire' and 'You Get So Alone At Times That It Just Makes Sense.'"
The Bukowski Project, with artistic idea and conception and music by Lemper, features additional composition and arrangements by Todd Turkisher and Vana Gierig.
Here is a look at Lemper's theatrical evening of poetry and song:
