The Kennedy Center and the United States Botanic Garden (USBG) collaborate for the first time on a unique and inventive world premiere musical, Flowers Stink, performed outdoors on the Amphitheatre stage at the USBG. The musical mixes singing and dancing with folk, bluegrass, blues, and gospel, to tell the story of how one middle school girl learns to appreciate nature by opening her eyes, ears, and mind to the beauty around her, unleashing the very best of her imagination and creativity. Written by the creators of Dizzy Miss Lizzie’s Roadside Revue, the musical teaches that, with a close eye, one can find the best of nature in the most unlikely places. Performed FREE to the public on Sept 26, Oct 3, 10, 17, and 24 at 11am. & Sept 26 at 1pm & on weekday mornings for school groups by reservation.
