Show Time!

Standard

Writing is typically a solitary activity — just me sitting on the love seat, typing,  while the cats look on from the other couch. Consequently, watching actors perform your words is a true delight.  Rhumba at the Rizal is  a short play– my first! — is inspired by  my unpublished novel, The Rizal Dance Hall Murder. 

With so many white actors playing yellow face, having Asian actresses play white face is supreme poetic justice
