Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots

A few of us at viadesign (myself included) have been to see Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots recently at La Jolla Playhouse. I heard a story about it on NPR, and being a fan of the Flaming Lips and plays that dare to break the boundaries, I was intrigued. I was certainly impressed with how they wove the original songs together with a very touching story and really entertaining stage effects! Without “saying” many words, the characters were easy to love, and extremely well-played—and sung—by the cast. And, the analogy that the robots represented (you’ll have to see for yourself) was brilliant. This play only runs through December 16, so you better get kicking if you want to see Yoshimi’s moves! Highly recommended.  – Jen
