Stage Notes: The National Asian American Theatre Company & Leah’s Train

Sunday, January 11, 2009

Caught this down at the NYT and wanted to repost it up here:

The National Asian American Theater Company will present “Leah’s Train,” by Karen Hartman, directed by Jean Randich, Feb. 6 through 28 at the TBG Theater, 312 West 36th Street, Manhattan. This is a first for the 20-year-old company: a world premiere of a play about a non-Asian culture, performed by an all Asian-American cast. Ms. Hartman’s play is about three generations of women from a Jewish family. The cast will include Jennifer Ikeda, who was in last season’s Broadway production of “Top Girls” and is appearing off Broadway in “Women Beware Women.”
