Hmm, saw casting notice below come across on Actor’s Access.
Social commentary humor is harder to pull off than people think. See my friend and yoga-mate Ken Narasaki’s open-letter to the Falcon Theater, after the actor and playwright walked out of their latest production because of the use of racist slurs to generate humor.
That I’m always cautious in dealing with people who want to generate hits more than intelligent awareness comes from a lifetime of observing culture.
