Ching Chong Chinaman

The family is trying to learn how to use chopsticks from "Ching Chong" or the Chinese man.

Last night, my mom and I went to go see Ching Chong Chinaman, presented by Artists At Play. Ching Chong Chinaman is a comedy that focuses on the topic of social racism, and finding one's true identity. The story is about an "Americanized" Asian family. The son called Upton hires an indentured servant named Jinqiang (the family can't pronounce his name and call him Ching Chong) to do his homework so that Upton can focus on his main goal: to win the championships in the World of Warcraft. The story was amazing and the actors were amazing as well. You don't usually see asian actors that often, and the ones that acted in Ching Chong Chinaman were great (and could even tap dance!). Their facial expressions made my day. :) Many people want to see the show so the Artists at Play extended the dates to Ching Chong Chinaman all the way up to November 27.
