Walk Like a Dragon

James Shigeta was a Japanese American singer whom Hollywood studios recruited to shape into a leading man—even casting him opposite white lovers. In the western Walk Like a Dragon, Shigeta portrays a Chinese immigrant who defies racism in 1870s California, winning a shoot-out against Mel Tormé and winning the girl, a formerly enslaved Chinese woman (Nobu McCarthy) who was previously saved by Jack Lord’s character Linc Bartlett. Lead roles for Shigeta diminished after Flower Drum Song (1961) as the Hollywood studio system faded—but that didn’t stop Shigeta from working, including as the iconic Joseph Takagi in Die Hard (1988).

Enter the Dragon

Martial arts films were popular with Chinese audiences since the 1920s but it took Bruce Lee’s star power for the genre to catch fire worldwide. Born in San Francisco, Lee ignited his movie career in Hong Kong, experienced a frustrating career in the United States, and returned to Hong Kong where he directed and starred in hit films that caught the attention of Warner Bros. This all culminated with Lee’s seminal blockbuster, Enter the Dragon. “For Asian Americans, Bruce Lee wasn’t just exciting and cool. He was somebody who very deeply moved us, because he was us.”—Nancy Wang Yuen, media scholar.

Sick is a new, full-length dramedy. It tells of the early 1970s struggle to de-classify homosexuality as a mental illness in the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (The DSM). Based in part on the historical record, the play follows pioneering gay activist and aversion therapy survivor Ron Gold as he leads a full-throttle attack on the psychiatric establishment.   Check the website for pricing, dates, and times.
