Lemon Andersen's latest project, "County of Kings," starts in previews tonight at the Public Theater.
The monologist details his rough Brooklyn childhood, his salvation at Williamsburg's El Puente, and his later success in Def Poetry Jam and on the large screen.
Don't miss your chance to watch the talented performer in action, and possibly learn a little bit about Brooklyn history in the process.
“I stand on Bedford Avenue and look at all the people around me and I can tell they’re not native Brooklynites. I think these people will understand and enjoy what they’re moving into if someone presented it in the right way, and get a different take of the people they ride the train with everyday,” says Andersen. “They’ll get to see what the culture was like before they moved here, lived out on stage.”
Ticket and show information here for the six-week run.
