Check out “When Life Names You Lemon . . .,” a terrific article in Sunday’s The New York Times about “County of Kings,” a one-man show by Lemon Andersen that opens at the Public Theater in New York, tomorrow, September 29th. Lemon and my son Steve Colman were two of the stars who shared a Tony Award for “Russell Simmons Def Poetry Jam on Broadway.” Now, Steve is one of the producers of Lemon’s memoir, “County of Kings.” (The title refers to Brooklyn where he grew up.) Here’s a picture of the cast of “Def Poetry Jam on Broadway that Sara Krulwich of the Times took in 2002. Steve is first on the left, Lemon is third.
