The previews began Tuesday evening. This is the first activity that the scene has seen since March 12, 2020.
“Our entire senior team was present at this first performance to greet people and talk to people. You can tell the excitement of being back. We would say welcome, but they are leaving thank God, so happy to be back. “said the Geva Theater. The centre’s artistic director, Mark Cuddy.
“Vietgone” is a comedy and love story about Vietnamese refugees, who arrive in the United States after the fall of Saigon.
The show was inspired by the real life story of the playwright’s parents.
“It’s kind of a show that’s very theatrical on stage, and by that I mean sets and lights and costumes and music and video projections and moving sets. It has all the tricks we can do so it’s a great reminder that this is what I missed, ”Cuddy said.
