“Playwright Young Jean Lee’s worst nightmare was to make a predictable, confessional Korean-American identity play with a flowery Asian-sounding title. So that’s exactly what she did. Songs of the Dragons Flying to Heaven follows a character named “Korean-American” as she navigates the increasingly disturbing levels of a pseudo-Korean world like a contestant in an identity-politics video game. "Have you ever noticed how most Asian Americans are slightly brain-damaged from having grown up with Asian parents?" begins Korean-American, protagonist of Songs of the Dragons Flying to Heaven by Lee, whose explorations of stereotypes of race, gender, and religion are unflinching— and seat-squirming funny.”
