A reader sent the NY Daily News link to an article about Lemon Andersen and his one man show on Broadway, County of Kings.
Since Lemon (born Andrew) grew up in Sunset Park, his show talks about what it was like for him. He is half Puerto Rican and half Norwegian. Lots of Sunset Park there.
I must have seen him on Broadway when he was in Def Poetry, but it's too long ago to remember. My students and I were all blown away. Great show. As D. Haddock, the reader who sent the link in said, it's so good to hear about someone getting the opportunity to turn their life around.
