USA: Musical about fight for freedom of speech

USA_LMNOP-musical

In Houston, USA, a new musical about ‘letter censorship’, asking freedom of speech questions, premiered on 7 April 2015.

“Audiences should find the show thought-provoking,” said one of the musical actors, Jason Gotay. “It really makes you ask some big questions about what would happen if you lose that freedom of speech.”

‘LMNOP – A New Muzical’ plays until 19 April 2015 at TUTS Underground in Houston, USA.

“Chaos arises when letters begin to fall from a town monument and government officials ban them one by one. The community depends on the strength of a determined teenage girl to fight for their freedom of speech. Adapted from Mark Dunn’s 2001 award-winning debut novel ‘Ella Minnow Pea’, this unique musical is part romance, part clever word game and part adult fable that reminds us of how precious our liberties are and how important it is to have the courage to stand up for what we believe.”
