The New York Times on CHERCHEZ LA FEMME!


Jon Pareles of The New York Times chronicled August Darnell's return to New York City for the world premiere of Cherchez La Femme: The Musical at La MaMa! Kid Creole himself gave all the behind the scenes details about his music career, inspiration for this new musical, and what's next after La MaMa!
"Kid Creole and the Coconuts always seemed like a musical waiting to happen. Now that musical was taking shape, to open May 20 at La MaMa. It’s a double time warp: the 2010s looking back on the 1980s looking back on the 1940s."Jon Pareles,The New York Times
