Pan Asian Repertory Theatre now in their 37th season is presenting the New York premiere of FISHING for WIVES, a vi
ntage romantic comedy set in a magical 1913 Hawaii. A battle of the sexes from another era, written by Edward Sakamoto and directed by Ron Nakahara. The production began previews on April 5 and will run until April 27 at the Clurman Theatre, Theatre Row 410 W 42nd Street between 9th and Dyer. PAN ASIAN first began producing Edward Sakamoto’s works in 1981. FISHING for WIVES is his fifth play with the company and his nineteenth in a career that spans 5 decades. The delightful evening of pure storytelling is helmed by longtime collaborator, Ron Nakahara, also an actor, who can be seen in the film The Wolf of Wall Street and TV’s House of Cards.
Like Horton Foote whose family dramas define Texas country life, septuagenarian Sakamoto specializes in the rich fabric of Hawaii," says Artistic Producing Director Tisa Chang. "FISHING for WIVES is a significant renewal of Nakahara and Sakamoto’s longtime artistic partnership that will continue to explore the colorful characters of Hawaii for a new generation of artists and audiences." FISHING for WIVES officially opened on April 10. For tickets or more information call 212-239-6200 or go to www.panasianrep.org
