Abagnale successfully poses as a pilot, a doctor and a lawyer -- and wins the girl of his dreams -- before FBI agent Carl Hanratty finally catches up to him. The Tony Award-winning "dream team" behind Catch Me If You Can includes playwright Terrence McNally (The Full Monty, Ragtime) and composers Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (Hairspray). Learn More

A good,confident production by a new theater Asian American theater company in its first season,one which shows a lot of promise,some
of which is fulfilled with this play.

My wife and I thought this presentation was EXCELLENT! Cast did a great job conveying the spirit of the times (late 60's early 70's). It's a shame more people weren't in attendance - the theatre-going community of Chicago is missing good talent and productions here.

It was outstanding. I highly recommend it.
More Information About The Wind Cries Mary
Loosely adapted from Hedda Gabler, The Wind Cries Mary explores Ibsen's timeless themes of power and gender politics during the high point of the civil rights movement and '60s rock 'n' roll. Philip Kan Gotanda transforms Hedda Gabler into Eiko Hanabi, a Japanese American woman whose strength and intelligence is handcuffed by the burdens of gender and tradition. However, the political and racial climate of 1968 San Francisco could bring about a new model of freedom and choice for minorities and women.
