VIETGONE at THE ALLEY THEATRE

“Tong’s mother Huong (Desiree Mee Jung) provide superb comic relief throughout the show.”

VIETGONE at THE ALLEY THEATRE

“Also giving powerful performances-in multiple roles no less-are Desiree Mee Jung (an unforgettable Vietnamese mother-hysterically funny).”

– DONI WILSON, HOUSTONIA

VIETGONE at THE ALLEY THEATRE

“Finally, in a masterclass of comic versatility, Desiree Mee Jung tackles the role of Tong’s mother as well as a military translator, a free-love hippy and any other parts that needs filling in this constantly moving memory-scape.”

– TARRA GAINES, PAPERCITY

VIETGONE at THE ALLEY THEATRE

“The best of these earlier scenes are comic turns – particularly the moments featuring Desiree Mee Jung as the mother of Tong. Her timing and Nguyen’s witty lines are sharp.”
