The OBIE Award-winning NAATCO, National Asian American Theater Company, kicked off their 24th season with Clifford Odets's Awake & Sing! Stephen Fried directs an all-Asian American cast that includes Sanjit De Silva, Mel Duane Gionson, Andrew Ramcharan Guilarte, Mia Katigbak, Teresa Avia Lim, Jon Norman Schneider, David Shih, Alok Tewari, and Henry Yuk. This Off-Broadway limited engagement began August 16th at Walker Space (46 Walker Street) and continues through September 8th only.
Awake and Sing! recalls that this country was founded as the land of opportunity for immigrants who came to its cities and towns with an enduring belief in the American dream. Odets's characters are all the parents, grandparents, and children who sought refuge and forged new lives. Families like these from around the world continue to make their way here every day, making Awake & Sing! as timely today as it was when it was written.
Performances will be Monday through Saturday evenings at 7:00pm, with special added matinees Saturday September 7th and Sunday September 8th at 2:00pm; no performances August 26th or September 2nd.
Tickets are $25. To purchase tickets or for more information, visit www.naatco.org or call 866/811-4111.
