The King of the Yees at the Goodman Theatre

Looking to see a great play? Go see The King of the Yees: A Madcap Celebration of Family and Cultural Identity at the Goodman Theatre’s Owen Theatre.

Written by Lauren Yee and directed by Joshua Kahan Brody, The King of the Yees tells the story of Lauren Yee:

Going against tradition isn’t easy with 36 generations of ancestors to please.

Growing up just outside of San Francisco’s Chinatown, Lauren Yee has always felt like an outsider, especially compared to her father Larry, the unofficial king of the Chinese community. But when her father disappears, she must embrace her heritage for the first time in order to find him. Explore America’s largest Chinatown through the eyes of a new generation in this hilarious and heartfelt comedy.

Performances of The King of the Yees run until April 30th.

This Wednesday, April 5th, there will be a special College Night from 6-7pm, where you can meet the artists and enjoy some pizza and then see the show at 7:30. Use promo code COLLEGE for tickets online at only $10! A student ID must be presented at the event.
