Flaming Lips Musical

March 15, 2012 by staff 

Flaming Lips Musical, Des McAnuff, the Tony Award-winning director whose embrace of rock musicals has been passionate over the years, is writing and directing a new musical called Yoshimi and the Pink Robots, which will use the music and lyrics of the alternative rock band The Flaming Lips.

La Jolla Playhouse, where McAnuff served as artistic director for 18 years, will present the world premiere starting in November in the Mandell Weiss Theatre in La Jolla, CA. McAnuff directed Broadway’s Jersey Boys and the new revival of Jesus Christ Superstar. He won Tonys for directing The Who’s Tommy and Big River.

According to LJP notes, “Yoshimi is a young Japanese artist facing the battle of her life: the battle for her life. Adrift from her family and lover, Yoshimi journeys alone into a fantastical robot-world where she wages a war with fate. Will her will to survive be powerful enough to master the evil forces that threaten to destroy her?”
