$5.00

This event is all ages

Three Asian Women on Stage is a sketch revue that portrays the representation that's missing: how is it possible that you never see more than 1 Asian on stage? Why is it immediately considered a niche interest or (ugh) fetish? For once, we'd like to candidly explore issues such as: interracial relationships, identity crisis, the insanity of white casting, the actual joys of being bilingual, asian fairy tales, food AND MORE. There are so few opportunities for women of color to tell our stories, and when we do, it's still considered "the minor leagues." Hell to the no on that. We're nothing but major!

Starring: Susan Xu, Kirsten Pasia, Claudia Iao
