In 1973, Lou Reed’s album “Berlin” meets with hostile fans and critics, evidently because its precursor, “Transformer,” was an upbeat, glam-rock hit. Despite the album’s gradual critical acclaim, Reed never performs it live. This changes for five nights in Brooklyn, N.Y., as Reed performs the melancholy album in its entirety. The rock ‘n’ roll legend resurrects his doomed work, performing in front of projected images depicting scenes from the star-crossed romance the album narrates.
