Snow Falling on Cedars….raising funds for Japan
March 31, 2011

Captivating, heartbreaking lovely...

I went to see Snow Falling on Cedars last week at Center Stage…it was one of the most wonderful productions I’ve seen in a while. If you, like me, read the book some years back…and liked it…which I did…you will remember the story is set in one of America’s most shameful time periods… when thousands of Japanese Americans(many American by birth) were rounded up and sent off to internment camps. A murder trial, a love story, and a tale of friendship  lost and gained…all played on a single stage, which rotates! I loved it. 

And this Saturday night, April 2, you can support Red Cross efforts in Japan and see a wonderful play. Half of all tickets purchased to the 8 pm performance of Snow Falling on Cedars, will go to the Red Cross. And there’s a post-show party with the cast, where additional donations will be collected and all bar proceeds from the event will be donated as well. You can buy tickets at www.centerstage.org/snow. You won’t be sorry….
