UPDATE 2/13/2013: Congrats to Jacqueline Wu!
So here’s the deal. I’m on the Board of East West Players (EWP), the largest producing organization of Asian American artistic work and the longest running professional theater of color in the country. Since I’ve been on the Board, I’ve tried to attend every Opening Night of EWP’s mainstage performances.
This time, I’ve saved a pair of tickets for the opening of Christmas in Hanoi by Eddie Borey and directed by Jeff Liu. A lucky 8Asians reader and a friend will be my personal guests at the upcoming opening of this world premiere play. As with most EWP Opening Night performances, it includes pre-show hosted bar & post-show reception with cast and crew. Who knows… maybe you’ll even see your favorite Asian American actor in the audience?!
About the production:
February 7 – March 10, 2013
A mixed-race family returns to Vietnam for the first time since the war. One year after the death of their strong-willed mother, siblings Winnie and Lou travel with their Irish Catholic father and Vietnamese grandfather to re-connect with their roots. Whether they embrace that past or reject it, they are haunted by their own family’s ghosts and by the phantoms of Vietnam’s long history.
CHRISTMAS IN HANOI is the Winner of the East West Players Face of the Future Playwriting Competition.
Featuring: Joseph Daugherty, Elyse Dinh, Michael Krawic, Elizabeth Liang, and Long Nguyen.
