    The structure of this play is dynamic and challenging. It is an exploration of identity and race in America that I would be humbled to see onstage. The world building and character relationships are flawless - Lynett's craft is glowing!!!

    Choi crafts a dynamic and physical exploration of class and exploitation. I enjoyed the use of occupation, family, and obligation to highlight each character's needs for financial or artistic stability. I felt like I was in a theatre mash up of "Parasite" and "Crazy Rich Asians" - and I mean that in the absolute best way. A fast and thrilling play!

    GOOD CUBAN GIRLS is a fiery and heartfelt look at inter-generational women. Reilly observes Cuban and Cuban-American culture in an honest and comical way, showcasing the differences in the American-born experience.
