Scandinavian American Theater Company and Star Production present the US premiere of LENNON IN DENMARK, starring Vibeke Hastrup, from the Academy Award-winning film "Babette’s Feast", August 10-17, 2012 as part of FringeNYC.
A chance encounter between a young Danish woman and John Lennon in a remote part of Denmark forever changes her life. But was it for the better? With humor, a wry sense of the macabre and a fantastic ability to capture the essence of this woman's inner struggle, the piece compellingly portrays a woman's battle to free herself from herself and her past. Based loosely on a true set of events in the early 70’s, “Lennon in Denmark” takes you on a heart wrenching yet heartwarming journey about love, forgiveness, being stuck and finally letting go.
The show will play The New York International Fringe Festival's Venue #9: The Gene Frankel Theatre, 24 Bond Street (between Lafayette & Bowery). Performances run Friday 8/10 @ 7PM; Saturday 8/11 @ 2.15PM; Wednesday 8/15 @ 6:15PM; Thursday 8/16 @ 7.45PM; and Friday 8/17 @ 5.30PM.
