My colleague Meredith Deliso wrote a sharp preview of Lemon Andersen's County of Kings one-man show. I saw it in previews on Wednesday with about ten El Puente staffers. El Puente gets a big shoutout at the end of the play, and it's definitely worth a look. The play clocks in at 1 hour 40 minutes and could probably be condensed to one act, but Andersen's verbal wordplay and storytelling abilitiy are impressive. Anyone who follows political issues in Brooklyn and El Puente's work in general should hop over to the Public Theater's Newman Theater (425 Lafayete Avenue) and see this thing before it closes on November 8.
