A sequel to its legendary off-Broadway musical sketch hit Lemmings, which helped launch the careers of John Belushi, Christopher Guest, and Harold Ramis, National Lampoon’s LEMMINGS: 21ST CENTURY is a satire of modern Millennial corporate music festival culture.
LEMMINGS: 21ST CENTURY is written by Andrew Farmer, with a score by Henry Koperski, directed by Annie Tippe.
National Lampoon President Evan Shapiro announced the new Lemmings by saying: “a generation ago, National Lampoon skewered Boomers with ‘Three Days of Peace, Love & Death.’ We’re working today’s smartest artists to create a twisted musical comedy that mocks today’s mainstream culture, when people can seemingly only watch rock music through Instagram filters.”
Additional credits for Lemmings: Consulting Producer Patrick Catullo (Oh, Hello On Broadway, David Byrne's American Utopia) and Line Producers/General Managers Mike Lavoie and Carlee Briglia (Jacqueline Novak’s Get On Your Knees, Oh, Hello On (Off) Broadway).
The cast is a group of performers known for crossing comedy with music: Natalie Walker (Search Party, Bojack Horseman), Kiko Soiree (Named by Time Out Magazine as one of the rising LGBT POC comedians to watch), Preston Martin (Little Women, The Rest of Us), Andrew R. Butler (Larson and Lortel Award winning musical maker, star and creator of Rags Parkland?), Kim Blanck (Dave Malloy's OCTET), Eric Lockley (Luke Cage, First Reformed), Aneesa Folds (the recent Broadway run of Freestyle Love Supreme) and Amanda Shechtman (NBC's Sunnyside, Comedy Central).
