BWW Review: THE LEMON GIRLS OR ART FOR THE ARTLESS at La MaMa Photo BWW Review: THE LEMON GIRLS OR ART FOR THE ARTLESS at La MaMa
by Derek McCracken - Mar 16, 2022

These ladies don't lunch; they launch, twist, lurch, pop and topple.¬†Meet Lorca, Topo, Nivea and Pinny: the more-sweet-than-tart troupe in LEMON GIRLS OR ART FOR THE ARTLESS. The comedic performance-art-within-a-play follows a group of New York City senior (70ish) girlfriends, all alumnae of Lemon Elementary. As they find their footing in a youth-paced world, they step outside their comfort zones and onto the stage. Artistically in it together even if they‚Äôre not always sure what ‚Äúit‚ÄĚ is, the Lemon Girls show us that age is just a number: '5-6-7-8!'
