Photo Flash: Meet the Cast of NO-NO BOY at Pan Asian Repertory Theatre

Pan Asian Repertory Theatre (Tisa Chang, Artiic Producing Director), in tandem with "Day of Remembrance", opens its 41 season on themes of social justice and historic amnesia with the special return engagement of the acclaimed play NO-NO BOY by Ken Narasaki, based on the groundbreaking novel by John Okada. Directed by Ron Nakahara, the cast features Leanne Cabrera, Dinh James Doan, Chris Doi, Eric Elizaga, David Huynh, Scott Kitajima, Karen Tsen Lee, Claro de los Reyes, Shigeko Sara Suga, and Tony Vo. Performances begin February 7, 2018 for a limited engagement through February 18, 2018 at The Studio Theatre at Theatre Row (410 West 42nd Street). Opening Night is Sunday afternoon, February 11, 2018 at 3:00 p.m.

Set after World War II as Japanese Americans return to the West Coast, NO-NO BOY follows Ichiro Yamada, who struggles to reconnect with the Seattle community, after taking a bold stance on questions of allegiance. NO-NO BOY received critical acclaimed when it was presented in 2014 by Pan Asian Rep, and returned to NYC in 2016 prior to embarking on a national tour where the play received rave reviews in Washington, D.C.

The limited run of NO-NO BOY is running in tandem with the Day of Remembrance (DOR), a day commemorating the Japanese American internment during World War II. Events in numerous U.S. States are held on or near February 19, the day in 1942 that Executive Order 9066 was signed, requiring internment of all Americans of Japanese ancestry.

The creative team includes sets by Sheryl Liu, costumes by Hyun Sook Kim, lights by Leslie Smith, and sound by Ian Wehrle. The Production Stage Manager is Elis C.Arroyo with Sabrina Morabito.

Tickets are priced at $43.25 for all performances and may be purchased through Telecharge at www.telecharge.com, or by calling 212-239-6200.
