The Death of Miss America
The first production was written and directed by Loni Berry. The Death of Miss America, a brutal comedy with music is a beauty pageant spoof with Asian stereotypes.
The Miss Tomorrow Pageant is a beauty contest spoof. The final round of the competition takes place in Bangkok, where, four of the five finalists are from Southeast Asian countries. The fifth finalist, who is also Asian, represents America. The competition progresses through the traditional swimsuit, evening gown, and extemporaneous Q&A sections. Just before the winner is announced, Miss America drops dead. Finding the answers to how and why drives the story from that point on.
The play is an “in-your-face” comedy that poignantly addresses stereotypes of Asian women. In addition, the play stresses the importance of the newly launched Association of Southeast Nations (ASEAN). Family Entertainment.
