"Asian American Culture on Stage " captures the 30-yearhistory of the East West Players (EWP), tracing the company's re-presentation of Asian Americans through the complicated social and cultural changes of the past three decades. Throughout its history, the changes in the focus and interest of the EWP reveal patterns in the development of Asian American ethnic theater. By examining productions, the progress of company members, and the forum offered for Asian American playwrights to stage new works this study charts the vital contributions of the EWP to Asian American communities and to other Asian American theaters.(Ph.D. dissertation, Indiana University, 1996; revised with new preface)
"Refreshingly short on academic jargon and long on information... a welcomd addition to the published literature in the field of Asian American theater history... Kurahashi has given readers the true stuff of theater history and an opportunity to appreciate the life of an Asian American theater company... Journal of Asian-American Studies, 3 #3, October 2000, Barbara Kaplan."
"Her account is a welcome addition to the growing body of historical scholarship that details theatre's participation in redefining American radical politics.."
