“Lemonade for the Lawnboy: The Musical!”
UNLIKELY FRIENDSHIP INSPIRES UNLIKELY ARTISTIC COLLABORATION
Dream team of Minnesota artists, writers and musicians come together to create a very original musical.
What do you get when you explore the magical, yet tangled, intersection between the genius of art and the self-destruction of addiction; set it to catchy music against a backdrop of vivid visual art; and deliver it via a powerhouse cast of performers? You get “Lemonade for the Lawnboy: The Musical!,” a new musical theater production running for one week this June in Hastings.
The story-within-a-story musical is a multilayered artistic collaboration based on the life and art of the formerly down-and-out David W. Cook II — the local artist known as “the Flower Bomber” for his public guerrilla art installations of giant, colorful flowers — who once worked as a lawn boy for the wealthy women of Minnetonka.
“Lemonade for the Lawnboy: The Musical!” runs June 1 through June 5 at the Hastings Arts Center, 216 4th Street East, Hastings, and is made possible with support from the Hastings Prescott Area Arts Council. Read More
Tickets are available for $20 here.
