Reviews

Chang(e)

"Kim and Takahashi have created a masterful remembrance of Change, and they have continued to carry her legacy onward"

Oregon ArtsWatch (Portland, Or.) Review by Elizabeth Whelan

---------------------------------------------------------------

MLCG (My Little China Girl)

"A moving and sincere physical soliloquy detailing the artist's experience growing up as an Asian American amidst societal expectations and personal turbulence." Ran Xia, Theatre is Easy "Best Bet" Pick

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chang(e)

"Chang(e) alternates between reality and illusion, and its visual and aural environment is so alluring you want to bathe in it..." - Laura Collins-Hughes, The New York Times

"Soomi Kim is fearless as Change, simultaneously attracting and repelling the audience with her convictions, while showing a startling vulnerability..." (★★★★) - Diep Tran, Time Out New York

" At the center of it all is an awe-inspiring performance by Soomi Kim, who is on stage the entire ninety minutes... Kim captures all that was so mythic about the troubled activist."- Arpita Kukherjee, Stagebuddy.com

Reviews and quotes for Lee/gendary:

NYTheatre.com- Jason Grossman

“Soomi Kim is a commanding presence as Bruce Lee. It takes mere seconds to see beyond her gender, and she convincingly portrays one of the most popular male action stars of the 20th century. Bruce Lee himself would be proud.”

Offoffonline.com- Li Cornfeld

“Kim inhabits Bruce without irony. Her female body draws attention to the issue of gender; her committed performance disregards it as a non-issue. It’s an effective dichotomy, especially given that Lee’s identity is more often examined through a racial lens than a sexual one.”

“Kim is enormously talented and displays true stage presence.“

Kungfumagazine.com- Douglas Ferguson

“If Wong Kar Wai directed a play about the life of Bruce Lee it would resemble LEE/GENDARY.”
