“Mr. Yunioshi” Best Solo Performance Hollywood Fringe 2019 Returns to Los Angeles.
“Mr. Yunioshi” (Hollywood Fringe 2019 Best Solo Performance) written, directed and performed by J. Elijah Cho, produced by Ari Stidham and David Stidham, will have two runs as a guest production of the Santa Monica Playhouse, offering two shows in November and three shows in December.
Mickey Rooney’s infamous performance as Mr. Yunioshi in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” is often pointed to as the most egregious example of yellowface in the movies. His ‘over the top’ characterization is cringeworthy to watch to this day, but it also raises several questions: Should actors have the opportunity to play ANY role? Could there ever have been a ‘right’ way to play it? And what compels an actor to play a character that they really shouldn’t be playing? Asian-American writer/performer J. Elijah Cho attempts to explore these topics and more in his show.
“Mr. Yunioshi” will play Sundays, December 5th, December 12th and December 19th at 2:00 pm. Tickets are $20. For tickets: mryunioshi.com/ Santa Monica Playhouse/Main Stage: 1211 Fourth St, Santa Monica 90401.
