It’s Impossible to Perfectly Tune a Piano
February 6, 2024 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm
“A memoir of minds gone out of tune.” – New York Times
The story of 4 brothers told through a theatrical escape into the art and science of piano tuning. James Smith and his brothers have had life-long journeys with OCD, autism, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.
Through his piano tuning James discovered the perfect metaphor to process the mental complexities of his family. James shares their personal story – while tuning the Registry Theatre grand piano beautifully, and imperfectly.
