The East Side: A New Musical
Harvard University, Farkas Hall, April 2019
Book by Julia Riew, Jared Leong, and John Lim; Music and Lyrics by Julia Riew
The East Side is a new coming-of-age musical comedy that tells the story of 17-year-old Ryan and his mother, Ms. Chen, as they struggle to keep their dumpling restaurant afloat in an increasingly gentrified New York City’s Chinatown. Inspired by the writers’ experiences navigating their Asian-American identities, The East Side explores the challenges of finding authenticity and connection.
