ARTS Pick: Rufus Wainwright

Rufus Wainwright celebrates the anniversary of his album 'Poses' at the Paramount (Oliver Mark). Rufus Wainwright celebrates the anniversary of his album ‘Poses’ at the Paramount (Oliver Mark).

When Rufus Wainwright’s second album, Poses, came out in 2001, the singer-songwriter extraordinaire was in the throes of critical adoration, collecting awards and accolades, but lacking commercial success and struggling with addiction. Good pal Elton John helped him into rehab, and Wainwright quickly got back on track, defining himself over the next 15 years through his unique voice and a nearly supernatural talent that moves easily from opera and indie pop to gay cabaret and Shakespeare. The current All These Poses Anniversary Tour is a celebration of his fascinating career.

Monday 12/10. $40-411, 7:30pm. The Paramount Theater, 215 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 979-1333.
