With her band ‘Future Wife,’ playwright Young Jean Lee hits L.A. for the first time, taking the stage in a life-affirming show anyone could perform, about the thing everyone has in common: We’re gonna die. You may be miserable, but you won’t be alone!
In what The New York Times described as a “bizarre combination of pop concert and autobiographical lament for the human condition,” up-and-coming theater maker Young Jean Lee fearlessly launches herself into one of humanity’s most feared (and wholly inescapable) topics—mortality.
Sad stories, harsh realities, tales of loss and tragedy, when delivered in Young Jean Lee’s deadpan style and paired with peppy pop tunes sung by the artist, alchemize into a moment of collective hope.
Young Jean Lee is an OBIE award-winning playwright and director who has been called “the most adventurous downtown playwright of her generation” by The New York Times and “one of the best experimental playwrights in America” by Time Out New York.
