Show #16: “Do it for Umma” featuring Skye Bing Bong Stephenson, Ina Chang, Christian Thomas, Maggie Lee, Katie Driscoll, Laura Dux, Anna Saephan, and Corinne Magin at Annex. A pure hoot of a show! So much fun! This Korean American “Hamlet-esque” revenge comedy is pee-in-your-pants funny no matter who you are, but especially so if you have an Asian mom like Umma. What a wonderful full-play debut for Seayoung Yim and terrifically directed by Sara Porkalob. Get on the waiting list and try to catch the show if you can (all performances are already sold out). ‪#‎SEAthtr‬
