Kristina Wong: The Wong Street Journal

Kristina Wong: The Wong Street Journal

"Fiercely comic… the kind of politically focused theater that not only makes you think and question your own preconceptions but also have a great time doing it.” 

San Francisco Chronicle

“Politically charged art with unapologetic humor.” – Bitch Magazine

Kristina Wong’s sharply hilarious solo performance The Wong Street Journal, directed by Emily Mendelsohn, is part psychedelic TED lecture, part amateur hip-hop extravaganza, and part nonsense. On a charmingly crude hand sewn set made from the finest discount felt, the incisive L.A. performer, comedian and Facebook phenom breaks down such complex issues as click bait, global poverty, privilege and economic theory, using uneasy-to-read charts, live hashtag wars, and riveting hand-crafted slideshows. Wong weaves a self-skewering personal narrative with a laugh-out-loud interrogation of America's legacy on the rest of the world, with a special focus on observations from her recent adventures in Northern Uganda, researching and recording a rap album with local rappers.
