Some description

Songs of the Dragons Flying to Heaven smashes the conventions of Asian-stereotypes to bits and tosses them up like confetti. Young Jean Lee, one of the hottest downtown New York playwrights, ​turns the Asian-identity play on its head when a coterie of Korean American women explore what it means to be Asian in a white-dominated society. Music, Korean tradition, romance and violence flood the stage. The result is a Tarantino-esque collage of monologues, dances and scenes that is as sharp as it is hilarious. 

2ndStage is Studio’s playground for emerging artists, offering innovative and thrillingly eclectic programming with shorter rehearsal periods and smaller budgets than our other productions, with a spirit of exuberance and experiment.
