Young Jean Lee’s show is more jagged kinetic poem than traditional narrative, and it plays with stereotypes at a pace that is at once furious and carefully studied. It offends intentionally and without borders, simultaneously jabbing the media images of Asian Americans created by testosterone junkies like Quentin Tarantino and the global pop culture that has transformed both the Asian schoolgirl and the traditionally garbed Asian woman into fetish porn. Closes this Sunday, Oct. 24. Studio Theatre 2ndStage, 14th & P Streets NW. Tickets are $30 to $35. Call 202-332-3300 or visit studiotheatre.org.
