HOT ASIAN DOCTOR HUSBAND


Following the sudden death of her Japanese mother – Emi, a twenty-something biracial woman – begins to urgently question her own legacy. Afraid that she is white-washing her Asian culture that she is now solely responsible for, she dumps her perfect white boyfriend of three years in pursuit of a hot Asian doctor husband. But nobody is what they seem to be in this highly theatrical comedy that asks the question: is love truly blind? Or are our relationships just a carefully curated conglomeration of our own racial bias?

PAY AS YOU ARE

Mu strives to voice the stories of the Asian American community, and in order to bring performances to those communities whose stories they tell, Mu is committed to make them as accessible as possible. Pay As You Are pricing asks those who routinely pay $35-$40 for theater tickets to choose to pay that amount; it is the actual fair market value of the ticket. If an audience member needs to pay less, they can choose to pay less – as little as $5 per ticket.
