The theatre is in the same building as '50s diner Peggy Sue's, which is open late, so I went there after the show. I can't recommend it. Overcooked, flavorless burger; chili cheese fries tasted mostly of the beans.

The theatre has a full bar with snacks - cookies, mini-cheesecakes; I had a Brie plate that wasn't abusively priced at six dollars. Not really anything to make a meal of.

Description

Presented by Contemporary Asian Theater Scene and Asian American Theater Companyl, TeleMongol uses the sketches to tell the story of AHOLE-TV (Asia Home of Language Entertainment), a fictional cable network with a mission to create programming by and for the Asian Pacific American community.

The show takes a satirical look at both the behind-the-scenes politicking at the station and the programs chosen to air. Skewering everything from the issues faced by ethnic media to well-known icons like American Idol reject William Hung and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Il, TeleMongol promises to be an irreverent look at contemporary Asian American pop culture.
