RECOGNITION / AWARDS

Obie, From Off-Broadway

Adrienne Kennedy relates her star-studded experience of moving to London and working on THE The Lennon Play: In His Own Write. Her absolute astonishment at being thrust in among the rich and famous of the theater and film world is really refreshing and charming. This is a great story, told in an interview-style conversation between a mother and son.


REVIEWS

"Brief, odd, and entrancing...Refreshing...We are eavesdropping as a curious son prods his interesting mother to recollect a colorful — in fact glamorous — chapter in her past. " - The New York Times

"Touches on Adriennes’s common theme of individuality under attack...Alows us effortless access into Adrienne’s memory, which has been painted with a loving faithfulness that makes London into newly explored territory... The writing is impressively detailed and echoes with the same poetry of the prosaic that defines Adrienne’s best works" - Talkin' Broadway


Mom, How Did You Meet the Beatles? was first presented Off Broadway by artistic director Oskar Eustis at the Public Theater in New York City as the first production in the company's Public Lab series, on Feburary 12, 2008. It was directed by Peter DuBois.
