On the way back from Zuccoti Park this weekend, care to check out two plays currently in preview? I know art is a luxury for us 99’ers nowadays. But if you do manage to see either of these, I’m curious about what the odds are that each would enlighten views from the other side? One percent?
“Asuncion” is about a couple of friends whose liberal views are challenged when a Filipino woman moves in with them. Jesse Eisenberg, famous for his role in “The Social Network”, is the playwright and one of the actors.
“Chinglish” by David Henry Hwang, Tony award-winning playwright (M. Butterfly), traces similar cross-cultural challenges, this time from the perspective of a businessman traveling to China.
