April 19, 2001 | F. KATHLEEN FOLEY, SPECIAL TO THE TIMES
The latest in Jude Narita's rich canon of one-woman shows, "With Darkness Behind Us, Daylight Has Come," at Highways, takes on the heft and poignancy of oral history, much as did Narita's 1987 solo turn, "Coming Into Passion/Song for a Sansei." While "Sansei" beautifully explored differences between Japanese-born Americans and their Westernized offspring, "Darkness" takes on one specific subject--the experiences of Japanese American women interned by the U.S. government during World War II.

Meet the many faces of Jude Narita. In the course of her one-hour, one-woman show, "Coming Into Passion/Song for a Sansei" (at the Fountain through Sept. 13), she introduces us to five characters with diverse personalities: funny, sad, hip, docile, brash, noble--and some who are all of the above.

After her endlessly fascinating one-woman show, "Coming Into Passion/Song For a Sansei," and a nervy performance as Hedda Gabler at East West Players earlier this year, it was difficult to gauge where writer-actress Jude Narita would go next. The titular answer, "The Tiger on the Right/The Dragon on the Left," is at the Fountain Theatre in Hollywood. The deeper answer is that Narita is in transition, along with her four fellow Asian-American writer-actresses.

Mary Helen Berg's March 18 Outtakes profile of the model Ariane pays lip service to a disturbing trend in the film business. Ariane's stilted performance in "The Year of the Dragon" was soon followed by the spiritless screen debut of another Asian-American model in a leading movie role, Sari Chang in "China Girl." Their wooden performances in these high-cost Hollywood productions imply that the industry would rather promote the careers of fashion models than fill its films with seasoned Asian-American talent.
