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)
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.
