A Kennedy Center musical co-commissioned with the U.S. Botanic Garden
Words and music by Debra Buonaccorsi and Stephen McWilliams
Directed by Gregg Henry
Cast features Maggie Donnelly, Jonathan Feuer, and Sakile Lyles
Following last year’s exciting launch of the Kennedy Center’s partnership with the USBG, Flowers Stink is back by popular demand after two Helen Hayes Award nominations, including Outstanding Theater for Young Audiences production! When struggling to write a nature-themed poem for school, a middle-school girl gives up and tweets: “#natureisboring #flowersstink.” Suddenly, two zany and loveable plants magically come to life, encouraging her to open her eyes, ears, and mind to the beauty all around her. Enjoy plenty of singing, dancing, folk, bluegrass, blues, and gospel, all set in the colorful world of the U.S. Botanic Garden.
Most enjoyed by age 7 and up.
Performance Timing: Approximately 45 minutes without intermission.
