What I liked

Writer/Performer Jonathan Cho’s father ran ticketing at the door.

What I didn't like

I don’t like that Mickey Rooney was ever cast as Mr. Yunioshi to begin with… but had it not been for that, we wouldn’t have this charming play.

My overall impression

Jonathan Cho has taken something ugly — Mickey Roony’s racist portrayl of Mr. Yunioshi in BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S — and has created something quite lovely out of it. Kudos to him for keeping it fun-spirited and light.
