MilkMilkLemonade - by Joshua Conkel

March 17, 2011 - April 17, 2011

Thursday through Saturday @ 8pm, Sunday @ 3pm

Hailed by the New York Post as "funny and poignant...incredibly open-hearted and generous," and awarded 4 stars by Time Out New York, who raved “this batch of MilkMilkLemonade tastes especially bittersweet,” MilkMilkLemonade is the story of 11-year old Emory, who dreams of being a singer and a dancer. His plans to ribbon dance his way to television's "Reach For The Stars" are thwarted by his Nanna, who is determined to mold Emory into a normal American boy, and erase his days of Jazz hands and Nina Simone covers.
