Fishing for Wives - 2014 - Off-Broadway

$25-$100

Fishing for Wives is a vintage comedy-of-errors called “Excellent” by the Honolulu Pulse: Nishi, tired of life as a single fisherman, sends for a picture bride from his native Japan but includes a photo of his handsome friend in his place. The bride arrives and falls in love- with the wrong bachelor- setting off a comic rivalry and a final surprise turn of events, colorfully visualized against the backdrop of the Hawaiian islands.
