About Emojiland:

Not to be confused with, and very much unlike The Emoji MovieEmojiland is an electric ensemble piece about a diverse community of archetypes who take one another at face value: a smiling face dealing with depression; a princess who doesn’t want a prince; a skull dying for deletion; a nerd face too smart for his own good; a face with sunglasses who can’t see past his own reflection; and a police officer and construction worker who just want to work together.

Our Emojiland Review

Since emojis first made an appearance in Japanese technology in the late 90s, they have grown into a language within themselves, shifting the way that humans virtually communicate and even making the Oxford dictionary word of the year in 2015 (with the laughing, tear emoji). With that understanding, it was disappointing to find that Emojiland, the new musical from Keith Harrison and Laura...
