On the Evjue Stage

Directed by Betty Diamond

September 26 - October 11, 2014.  Evjue Stage.

“Yankee dawg you die” is a line Vincent Chang, an Asian-American actor who came of age during WWII, often had to say playing the role of evil “Jap” soldier.  Bradley Yamashita, a young Asian-American actor getting his start in the 1980s, thinks taking such roles is demeaning.  Gotanda explores this still timely dilemma affecting actors of all stripes in his comic drama, Yankee Dawg You Die. AND: It's got Godzilla in it!
