Inspiration can come from the most unlikely of sources–“what a doll” that Amanda Palmer is!
Be sure to check out my Sunday, May 3 Boston Herald feature on Lexington High School’s spring production of “With a Needle that Sings in Her Heart”, a drama inspired by one of my favorite albums, Neutral Milk Hotel’s 1999 record In The Aeroplane Over the Sea.
The driven students conceived and wrote an entire script in just two months–with help from the brilliant musician Amanda Palmer, one half of the Dresden Dolls and a 1994 graduate of Lexington High School and its drama program.
The thrifty students will perform to a packed house May 7, 8, and 9. Pulp and Circumstance will be in the house Saturday night and couldn’t be more excited to see what these students came up with.
Thanks to all of Lexington High School’s drama students for participating in this article, as well as all those amazing hipsters who are traveling far and wide (including Dallas, Texas!) to see the gig. Golf claps!
For P&C’s previous mentions of this amazing project, clicky clicky.
