The 18 Mightly Mountain Warriors Get On the Bus
San Francisco-The 18 Mighty Mountain Warriors and Asian American Theater Company (in it 30th anniversary season) present the world premiere of 18 MMW's Spike Rhee's 'Get on the Bus', directed by National Theater of the Deranged veteran Ron Muriera in which a busload of very odd passengers find themselves on a madcap journey to the grave of Bruce Lee. In the satirical political style of the Warriors, expect an evening of comedic theater from a golden brown perspective and other viscous fluids.
The show runs October 4-27 2002, at Theater of Yugen/Noh Space, 2840 Mariposa St., San Francisco (at Alabama, near 18th St.)
Members of the press and one guest are invited to attend any opening weekend performance (October 4-6). For press reservations, please call (415) 440-5545.
The 18 Mighty Mountain Warriors are a pan-Asian American sketch comedy group. Through a dozen original productions and nationwide touring, the group has established itself as a new force in Asian Pacific Islander American arts. Steeped in the media chaos that numbs this nation's senses, and drawing from sources as diverse as Hong Kong cinema, Monty Python's Flying Circus and Saturday Night Live, the group uses a fast-paced cinematic approach to live theater in order to entertain and to provoke thought about the issues that affect Asian Pacific Islander Americans and all people of color.
