"Cambodian Rock Band" at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival
Just everything in and about CRB is quality, and it was my clear favorite of opening weekend. Yee acknowledges intergenerational differences and highlights how daughter and dad don't communicate. She lets old country/new country mores clash in her characters. But, the clashing is done with love, if sometimes frustrated love. The audience is drawn into the lives of every character: the young, the old, the well meaning, and the moral horror. All are honored. Excellent!
