The Flaming Lips have unveiled the full details of the musical based on their 2002 album, Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots. The show runs from November 6 to December 16 at the La Jolla Playhouse in San Diego, California.
"Yoshimi is a young Japanese artist [who] journeys alone into a fantastical robot-world where she wages a war with fate . . . Inspired by the whimsical and psychedelic music of Wayne Coyne and the Flaming Lips, this world premiere musical integrates music from several albums . . . The result is dazzling, multi-media experience that offers an allegory of our modern battle for progressive thought and individuality in the face of blind acceptance and conformity," reads a press release for the production.
The musical, directed by Des McAnuff, also incorporates music from the Lips' The Soft Bulletin and At War With The Mystics.
