The Broadway premiere of Young Jean Lee's Straight White Men toasted its opening night on July 23. Following the performance at Second Stage's Helen Hayes Theater, the company of Straight White Mean headed to DaDong to celebrate.

In Straight White Men, "it's Christmas Eve, and Ed has gathered his three adult sons to celebrate with matching pajamas, trash-talking, and Chinese takeout. But when a question they can't answer interrupts their holiday cheer, they are forced to confront their own identities." The production is directed by Tony Award winner Anna D. Shapiro.


Straight White Men stars Kate Bornstein, Josh Charles, Ty Defoe, Armie Hammer, Stephen Payne, and Paul Schneider.
