sort of

You know
you’re feelin’ good about yourself when you voluntarily return to your old high
school to stage an original play.

 

Bravo to
our favorite female Dresden Doll – Amanda Palmer – who isn’t content to rest on
her musical laurels which include critical kudos for her latest solo album Who Killed Amanda Palmer. She’s heading
back to her alma mater — Lexington High School just outside Boston – to create
an original play with her former drama teacher Steven Board and 20 beyond-lucky
students. The play’s content is inspired by the music and lyrics of In the Aeroplane Over The Sea by indie
rockers Neutral Milk Hotel.

 

Palmer’s
publicist reports the play – with the working title of The Needle That Sings In Her Heart —  centers on Jewish diarist and Holocaust
casualty Anne Frank and the idea that imagination and the creative process are
essential tools for human survival and redemption.  

 

Although
Palmer plays a variety of instruments while various cast members share the
vocal duties, she insists the play isn’t a musical.

 

A seat at
one of the shows – on May 7, 8, and 9 with doors opening at 7 p.m. — is yours
for $10. Smart money says you’d better pre-order as soon as tickets go on sale
today. Here’s how:  Palmer tickets
