What an immensely powerful show. Rinabeth Apostol was very skillful and talented portraying the Chinese Lady. This show weaves racism with how immigrants and Chinese women are portrayed in an exotic form in early American life., and more.

Good seats. Intimate theater. Good acting, especially the man servant. Fills in a bit of history I knew nothing about. Good insight into what the first Chinese female must have experienced.

Beautifully acted, and a reminder of our tarnished American history. Very relevant to what is occurring now at the border wall.
