Lemon Andersen

Located in the Great Hall on SUU's Campus.

On the occasion of the Hispanic Heritage Week, the APEX Series is happy to welcome Lemon Andersen on SUU's Campus. Raised in Brooklyn, Lemon Andersen won a Tony award as an original cast member of Russell Simmons Presents Def Poetry Jam on Broadway, for which he was also nominated for a Drama Desk Award. His staged memoir County of Kings: The Beautiful Struggle, produced by Spike Lee, premiered at the Public Theater in 2009 to rave reviews from The New York Times, The New Yorker and The Brooklyn Rail, among others. Since then, he has toured the one-man show–which took the grand prize at the 2010 New York Book Festival–at campuses and theaters across the U.S. and on three continents. More recently, Andersen was the feature of the internationally acclaimed documentary Lemon, screened in 2012-2013 at film festivals and performing arts centers across North America.

There will also be a screening of Lemon's DVD on Septemeber 14, at 4pm in the Sharwan Smith Theatre!
