KIPP Academy Lynn middle school alumni, Alex Newell, made history last night when they became the first nonbinary person to win a Tony for acting. Alex stars as Lulu, an independent, whiskey distiller in “Shucked,” a musical comedy about a rural community thrust into crisis when the corn crop on which it depends suddenly starts dying. They were featured in the Boston Globe and Lynn Item.
Congratulations, Alex! The KIPP Academy Lynn team is cheering for you!
