BWW Review: Confusion, Mostly Unintended, Abounds in THE GOLDEN DRAGON
by Gil Kaan - May 16, 2016

The Southern California premiere of playwright Roland Schimmelpfennig's THE GOLDEN DRAGON  benefits from the sturdy, first-rate technical production values The Theatre @ Boston Court has earned their deserved reputation for. Kudos to GOLDEN DRAGON's color-blind, gender-blind, ageist-blind casting. But with all this color/gender/ageist-blind casting comes the pitfall of equal opportunity offending.

Theatre @ Boston Court's THE GOLDEN DRAGON to Open This Weekend
by BWW News Desk - May 2, 2016

What starts out as a simple toothache evolves into a dizzying chain of events as a group of disparate people, played by a cast of five who assume many roles indiscriminate of age, gender, and race, struggle to make connections in an increasingly isolated world. At the center of the story is a Thai/Chinese/Vietnamese restaurant, The Golden Dragon, where a young Chinese man suffering from an oversensitive incisor sparks a whacked and weird series of interconnected stories. A delicious mixture of epic theatre, bizarre comedy, poetry, and fable combine to create this fabulous pho.
