Right the Fuck On, Sister (one for the scrapbook) Apr 5, 2013

1. In 1973, the Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade.

2. Working the patriarchal system.

3. I am a huge fan of the two previous plays that I've seen. YJL is one of the smartest, most direct playwrights I've ever encountered. The fact that she makes work about her biggest nightmares speaks to her intellectual chops as well as her fearless self-awareness. I was very excited to see this latest work.

Young Jean Lee #1 Super Asian Oct 4, 2009

I first saw Young Jean Lee's Theater Company's Songs of the Dragon Flying to Heaven at On the Boards a couple seasons ago and I saw THE SHIPMENT on opening night last Thursday. It's almost impossible to not compare the two pieces I viewed; both works are "ethnic identity plays". Both were disorienting pieces that constantly had me shifting the way I was looking at the work, re-organizing what was going on onstage, settling into the uncomfortable atmosphere, and anticipating what was going to happen next. Both take bold, unflinching risks. In short, watching YJL's work is an exhilarating and engaging experience. This work is fluid, provocative, experimental, and the fearless kind of theater that everyone needs to see. An awesome way to kick off this season at OtB!
