When Aliens Fall from the Sky is the long-awaited return to the stage of Tony Award winning poet and performance artist Lemon Andersen. Prepared for the Latinx diaspora, Anderson speaks truth to power of the unidentified and undocumented. He spits searing, insightful rhymes about the communities that are the bone marrow of our nation. A one-man show influenced by the autobiographical monologues of Spalding Gray, When Aliens Fall from the Sky is a rally cry for the melting pot of Latinidad to speak and act on the identity crisis in America and join in a collective path forward. Brown fisted, black skinned.
