Maura Nguyen Donohue @ West End Theatre

Assistant Professor Maura Donohue presents "strictly a female female" a mashup of Asian themed musicals/opera and (mostly) 80s rock. Donohue and, musical collaborators, Richard Ebihara & Perry Yung have recombined elements from Flower Drum Song, South Pacific, the King and I, and Madame Butterfly with 80s anthem rock from the likes of Journey, Billy Idol, Pat Benatar, and Guns N’Roses to create a truly absurd derivative mesh of the original sources. strictly a female female marks the first collaboration between Maura Nguyen Donohue/inmixedcompany and Slant Performance Group since their 1996 Lotus Blossom Itch at DTW. A reboot to their earlier examination of the Asian female body in popular culture, strictly a female female puts portrayals of race and gender through the blender for a riotous and ridiculous combination of live dance, music, and theater. Direction and choreography by Maura Nguyen Donohue. Music arranged by Richard Ebihara and performed by Ebihara & Perry Yung. Donohue is joined on stage by longtime company member Peggy Cheng, dancers Jessica Colotti (HC) and Timothy Edwards (HC), with MiRi Park starring as faux-queen, dancing diva Stella Ho.
