east west players presents wrinkles, february 10 - march 13

Heads up, L.A. theatre-goers... East West Players, the nation's premier Asian American theatre company, continues its 45th anniversary season with the world premiere comedy Wrinkles by Paul Kikuchi, running February 10 through March 13 at the The David Henry Hwang Theater in Little Tokyo. The play is described as "a sticky comedy about sex, lies and Tiger Balm." Whaaaaaaat?
Grandpa Harry's got a big secret! Unbeknownst to his daughter and grandson, 73 year-old Nisei Harry Fukutani is an internet sensation. But to view his work, you'd have to turn off the parental filter and have a valid credit card. A sticky comedy about sex, lies, and Tiger Balm. This play was developed in East West Players' David Henry Hwang Writers Institute.
This one might make you rethink a thing or two about senior citizens. Directed by Jeff Liu, the cast features Sab Shimono, Amy Hill, Elizabeth o, Ki HOng Lee, Scott Kenji Takeda and Lisa Dring. Here are some more details about the performance run:
