Local playwright May Lee-Yang’s comedy The Korean Drama Addict’s Guide to Losing Your Virginity centers on a Hmong woman whose misfortune with romance is a stark contrast to the escapist fantasies depicted in Korean soap operas. With her 30th birthday swiftly approaching, the amorously adrift woman must cope with not only her own anxiety, but the gender expectations of her culture. Enter a prospective bachelor, heir to a prosperous manufacturing company, whose employment has brought him to the Midwest. Harboring aspirations for a career in music, the man in question just might be a kindred spirit, or at least the closest approximation. Directed by Mu Performing Arts stalwart Randy Reyes, this world premiere production at Park Square is a refreshing take on a midsummer romance. For tickets, go to www.muperformingarts.org.
