Entertaining, Funny, Clever, Quirky, Delightful

See it if you want to enjoy a loving tribute to the two performers moms, delivered with lots of humor, slide photos, video, original music, good sound

Don't see it if you are offended by making light of ethnic parent-children relationships, are looking for scary zombies or a play - this is cabaret.

Delightful, Entertaining, Enchanting, Resonant

See it if a good cabaret act with significant points made about racism is something you can enjoy.

Don't see it if you only want to see a play.

"Rigg never misses a beat when she switches back from herself to her mother. Hung produces wonders from her electric violin...The production would sharpen if a majority of the images felt better timed to the comedy...We’re in the age of 'Crazy Rich Asians' where Asians American artists are starting their journey to saturate the mainstream, smash stereotypes, conquer erasure, and reaffirm cultural identity. 'Zombie Asian Moms' dutifully and rebellious checks off these goals."

“Biting, heartfelt, and hilarious, ‘Zombie Asian Moms’ offers a marvelously enjoyable evening of experimental theater...Consistently funny and increasingly moving...’Zombie Asian Moms’ makes clear an appreciation of its eponymous parents without discounting the hurt that they sometimes cause(d) their children or the (inter)cultural factors that impacted these dynamics. The result is simultaneously thought-provoking, poignant, and wildly entertaining."
