Curious incident of the piano in the nighttime

Like classical piano music? Like total sensory deprivation? Then you’ll love ‘The Memory of WT Stead’, a strange little show that has found its perfect niche in Steinway & Sons’ opulent piano showrooms in Marylebone. OK, so the target audience is pretty niche too – it’s one for classical music fans who like being blindfolded and led around in total darkness by strangers while voices whisper eerie stuff into their ears via headphones. Creators Lundahl&Seitl act like ghosts in the theatre or gallery, appearing briefly in period costume then fading into the dark. We still can’t tell you what it has to do with W T Stead, the investigative journalist who predicted his own death on the Titanic. But this curious incident of the piano in the nighttime is a refreshing oddity in a great zone one space, with an impassioned piano recital by experimental pianist Cassie Yukawa at the end of it. It only admits 8 people so tickets are scarce – the last batch goes on sale on Monday at midnight.
