According to an AP report, the unluckiest director in the biz will helm a webcast of the show for live streaming on YouTube, which should eliminate any chance that it will end up wildly over budget and delayed for 10 years. (Presumably.) It’s part of the same “Unstaged” concert series that recently paired The National with director D.A. Pennebaker. Can we get Grizzly Bear and Werner Herzog together next?
