Entertaining, Funny, Edgy, Original, Blazing a trail for asian american artists & promoting healthy racial conversation,

See it if U want to laugh & have a good time, U are open minded about learning about growing up in other ethnic cultures via humor. U like fun parody.

Don't see it if U dislike comedy. U don’t care about other cultures except your own. U view Asian artists as unacceptable for mainstream & marginal. Read more

Entertaining, Clever, Refreshing, Great songwriting, Indulgent

See it if you want to see a comedic, musical variety show about growing up Asian in America featuring two talented performers.

Don't see it if you would rather see a play with a linear narrative; you do not like sketch comedy or songs with jokey lyrics.

Heartfelt, Edgy, Clever, Hilarious, Quirky

See it if you value comedy and truth, feel a kinship having been raised by an overbearing mother (of any race) and can draw parallels to your life.

Don't see it if you are easily offended by straight speaking and occasional profanity, or don't like hardcore music. Read more

Resonant, Quirky, Funny

See it if Cathartic very-on-point Asian Am experience lyrics, fun impersonations of her mother, and personal journey towards acceptance of our moms.

Don't see it if Experience of an Asian American/overbearing mom is too foreign/triggering. No zombies, just haunting spirits of departed moms. Read more

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.

"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."
