Thanks to Asian in NY for this wonderful review of “Iva: The Myth of Tokyo Rose.”
“Iva: The Myth of Tokyo Rose”, directed by Soriya Chum and Elena Chang, is the trial case about Iva Toguri, a Japanese American citizen, who was accused of treason during World War II, was performed on stage at the Asia Society on Thursday, May 16th. AsianInNY had the pleasure to experience the reenactment of Iva’s case. Iva was known as the infamous “Tokyo Rose”, and her story has raised awareness of the issues of race and civil rights for the past decades. This production has brought discussion about social injustice, but most importantly, it will highlight the future actions of treating social injustice in today’s society.
