Stephin Merritt – writer, producer and master songsmith behind The Magnetic Fields’ 69 Love Songs – has long chronicled the human condition through song. In celebration of his first half-century on the planet, the famously mysterious artist is turning the spotlight around, sharing stories that span the years from his conception by hippies on a houseboat to his current position as one of America’s greatest living songwriters. The 50-Song Memoir recounts Merritt’s first 50 years with one song for each year of his life. A spectacular staging features 50 instruments from Merritt’s formidable collection and a newly expanded Magnetic Fields septet, alongside 50 years’ worth of ornaments and gadgets. Presented by Luminato.
