"The play 'Meet Murasaki Shikibu…' takes what feels like a long time to accomplish what it sets out to do, and exactly what it sets out to do is not entirely clear...The play offers some truly witty moments, mostly when referring specifically to Japanese culture...These are details that might be lost on those who aren't familiar with Japanese. But then again, perhaps that is the point. American ethnocentrism often wipes away nuanced details about other cultural perspectives."
