Out of a thousand applications, Yellow Brick Wall: Angry White Men Played by Two Happy Asian Girls written and staring Siho Ellsmore and Marisa Marquez, was chosen for the New York International Fringe Festival. Trust me, it's hard to get in. Marisa has applied with 4 different shows and this is the first time a show has been picked up. It is a big deal people!!!
Rice Flower, a WWII novel is green-lit to be the next blockbuster but these anti-exotic-blossoms face exploitation, objectification, and sexism. Two gregarious gals navigate a not-so-silk road playing 24 characters including Newt Gingrich, Jim Kramer and Al Pacino. This ain’t no Oriental Express, because we ain’t no carpet!
Be part of making this crazy comedy a reality!
You may be curious about the numbers, well...you may have guessed that $12 and $24 represent the number of characters, $48 because that's 24 X 2, then it became too difficult to count by 12 (hey, just because we're Asian doesn't mean we are good at math) and the big total is $3,333 - because 3 is a good luck number in China and if it is good enough for the Chinese, it is good enough for us because we own iPhones. Too soon?
