– OBIE AWARD WINNING ASIAN AMERICAN CLASSIC –
“For the warriors in my family” ~ David Henry Hwang
Following our hugely successful state-wide tour of Chinese restaurants, Mu’s production returns to Minneapolis for a 3-week run at Mixed Blood Theatre.
Hwang’s landmark 1979 play deftly explores relationships and conflicts between established ABC (American Born Chinese) and FOB (Fresh Off the Boat) newcomers. The production stars Randy Reyes, Meghan Kreidler, and Michael Sung-Ho and follows Mu’s recent productions of other David Henry Hwang plays including Yellow Face (2010) and his adaptation of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Flower Drum Song (2009).
Don’t miss this lively gem from the beginning days of the Asian American theater movement as Mu transforms Mixed Blood Theatre into a Chinese restaurant.
Each Saturday, special guest panelists from local Chinese-owned restaurants will be on hand to field questions from the audience after each performance.
- JANUARY 31 – Nina Wong of ChinDian Cafe
- FEBRUARY 7 – Michelle and Sunny Kwan of Keefer Court Bakery & Cafe
- FEBRUARY 14 – Daniel and Yolanda Wang of Tea House
