Joe's Pub presents LEMON ANDERSEN: The Beautiful Struggle on Monday, August 18.
Part of INCOMING! Works in progress from Under the Radar Series at Joes Pub.
Lemon Andersen, a critically-acclaimed poet and actor best-known for his Tony Award winning work in Russell Simmons' Def Poetry Jam on Broadway and HBO, brings his jarring coming-of-age memoir to life in The Beautiful Struggle. This portrait of a modern "manchild" on a tumultuous journey of self-discovery is performed in Lemon's unique voice, weaving drama with urban poetry. His true story of finding passion and purpose in life, against all odds, exposes the human experience behind the most influential and prevalent cultural movement of our time, commonly referred to as hip-hop. This performance, developed and directed by Elise Thoron, is an original production of The American Place Theatre's esteemed Literature to Life® educational series.
