Originally presented by Spike Lee at The Public Theater in New York, County of Kings received critical acclaim including a rave review from The New York Times’ Ben Brantley. Lemon’s unique voice flows from hard-edged drama to street poetry, creating a vivid portrait of his adverse yet often humorous coming-of-age experiences while growing up in Brooklyn in the 80s and 90s. Andersen’s performance touches on young love, sibling rivalry, juvenile crime, addiction and ultimately personal triumph in this moving one-man journey toward self-discovery and redemption. County of Kings has been staged for American audiences from coast-to-coast, in Europe and South Africa.

Andersen is a critically acclaimed and award-winning stage, film and poetry artist and a Tony® Award-winning original cast member of Russell Simmons’ Def Poetry Jam On Broadway.

BEYOND has been presenting performances that you can see nowhere else in Arizona for nearly 20 years, and this year brings some unique artists you won’t want to miss.

BEYOND Season Ticket Packages available now for only $75 at 480.965.3434 and the ASU Gammage box office.

Made possible in part by Reverend Jenny Norton and Bob Ramsey.
