“Bulgogi and Buried Secrets at Cafe Nordo.” -CityArts Magazine
Set during the first large scale wave of Asian American Immigration in The Persimmon Grove, a lurid nightclub, a brash young Korean immigrant rises to great heights in his ethnic enclave while balancing two lovers and many debts in the 1960s / $70s. At the top of his game, he risks it all. Persimmon nights features pungent Korean food and the all-girl pop trio The Kimchi Kittens.
