Photo Flash: 'The Joy Luck Club' Opens Nov.7

Pan Asian Repertory Theatre launched their 31st season with a new production of The Joy Luck Club, a play by Susan Kim adapted from the acclaimed novel by Amy Tan.  With direction and musical staging by Pan Asian Rep's Artistic Director, Tisa Chang, The Joy Luck Club runs through November 25 at the Julia Miles Theatre (424 W. 55th Street between 9th & 10th Aves).  Opening night is Wednesday, November 7 at 7PM.

"Set in San Francisco in the 80's, The Joy Luck Club follows four Mahjong playing mothers from different provinces in China and their relationships with their American born daughters.
