Engaging, Thought-provoking, Educational, Hilarious, Ambitious

See it if great comic timing to make significant political & social commentary excites you. Cho has done his research to make his points with clarity

Don't see it if you have difficulty accepting that jocularity & social awareness can coexist peacefully in a one hour performance.

Excellent acting, funny and thought-prvoking

See it if you saw Breakfast at Tiffany's and were dismayed by the racist portrayal of someone Japanese by Mickey Rooney.

Don't see it if you cannot get to the theater between 5/25/22 and 5/29/22....otherwise run, run, run to see it. It is well worth seeing. Read more
