If you don’t live on the West Coast, you may not have seen Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, the musical put on by the La Jolla Playhouse in San Diego. Even if you do live there, you may have missed your opportunity, because it only ran for ten days in December. Well, now you have a second chance, as the production I’ve fantasized about for years is finally going to Broadway! Wayne Coyne, lead singer/songwriter of The Flaming Lips, seems to confirm it in last week’s interview with Paper Magazine, though I’d heard rumors to that effect for quite a while now.
If I can magically obtain tickets to the Daily Show, I might just have TWO good reasons to visit the Empire City.
