Speaking of the Arts...Lynn Ahrens

Lynn Ahrens with Booker High School students

In February 2020, we had the opportunity to eavesdrop on a conversation between Tony Award winning lyricist Lynn Ahrens and Celine Rosenthal, Asolo Repertory's Associate Artistic Director.  Secrets for developing the lyrics and music for a brand-new musical, Knoxville, were shared. 

Knoxville was to make its World Premiere in March, 2020 at Asolo Repertory Theatre. It has been rescheduled for May 21 – June 5, 2021, previews begin May 14.
