Michael Golamco's Cambodian-American teen drama Year Zero celebrated the May 26 opening of its New York premiere at Second Stage Theatre Uptown.
Year Zero centers on "Vuthy Vichea, a 16-year-old Cambodian American who wears thick glasses, loves hip hop, and plays Dungeons and Dragons. After his mother's death, Vuthy and his sister Ra struggle to reinvent themselves in Long Beach, CA, where being different can be deadly." The piece is directed by Will Frears, and features a cast of four consisting of Mason Lee, Maureen Sebastian, Peter Kim and Louis Ozawa Changchien.
Matt Bomer, Zachary Quinto, Andrew Rannells, Robin de Jesús, Brian Hutchison, Tuc Watkins, Charlie Carver, and Michael Benjamin Washington share secrets behind the play’s design, character perspectives, and the work’s importance in 2018.
