About the Book

This book captures the 30-year history of the East West Players (EWP), tracing the company's representation of Asian Americans through the complex social and cultural changes of the past three decades.


"Refreshingly short on academic jargon and long on information… a welcomd addition to the published literature in the field of Asian American theater history… Kurahashi has given readers the true stuff of theater history and an opportunity to appreciate the life of an Asian American theater company… Journal of Asian-American Studies, 3 #3, October 2000, Barbara Kaplan."

"Her account is a welcome addition to the growing body of historical scholarship that details theatre's participation in redefining American radical politics." -- Josephine Lee, University of Minnesota-Twin Cities
