TOKYO FISH STORY

Julianne Argyros Stage

Koji is a Sushi Master with an undying love for his art.  But his restaurant is declining while the new place down the street keeps packing them in.  Takashi represents the younger generation—a brilliant protégé, but too respectful to display his talent, despite the urgings of Nobu, his hip-hop assistant, and punked out Ama, who’s trying to make her way in a man’s world.  Generations, gender and tradition collide in this quiet play with a big heart, a touch of poetry, a hint of mystery—and just the right amount of enticing comedy.  Plus, a sushi-making ritual that will amaze.
