Kim’s Convenience

Saw this in Toronto, at the Young Center for the Performing Arts, and it was a riot. Mr. Kim’s accent was a bit too exaggerated to be authentic, but it’s forgivable. The theme is American children of immigrants and how they adapt to the culture, adopt it, and differ from their parents. In that sense, it’s a story that we’ve all seen before, which is why it works. What a great way to spend the 2nd day of Christmas.
