Prepare to leave “Cambodian Rock Band” smiling through tears and wondering how to reconcile those feelings.
That’s the power of Lauren Yee’s masterful new work: One way or another, it stays with you, grabbing a hold of your empathetic heart while landing a song or two on your playlist.
The new play is among the most honored in America this season, and now we know why. It is everything I want in a night out at the theater — entertaining on a multitude of levels, powerful, engaging storytelling, historically significant and it has City Theatre rocking to its rafters.
