Boston Band Crush Archived Article: High School Musical Crush: Amanda Palmer

This article originally appeared on Boston Band Crush ).
I’m going to throw a sentence at you, and don’t let your brain explode: Amanda Palmer has returned to her high school to create a play with her former drama teacher, Steven Bogart, inspired by Neutral Milk Hotel’s In the Aeroplane Over The Sea and starring twenty Lexington High School students. It’s a totally bizarre concept that sounds totally awesome.

The play’s title is With The Needle That Sings In Her Heart.

From the press release: “In the show itself, Palmer plays a variety of instruments while various cast members share the vocal duties. But Palmer
insists that this show should not be classified as a musical, “it’s a play that uses music, but it’s not a musical…””

Details: presented on May 7th, 8th and 9th at the Lexington High School
Auditorium. All ages, $10.00.
Doors at 7:00 p.m., show time 7:30 (with a matinee on the 9th)
Tickets are available now at
Order your tickets now, these shows will definitely sell out, and soon.

We’ll have our take on the play posted soon after May 9th.

Update: The Bostonist has an interview with Amanda Palmer about the play, link.
