Despite a master sushi chef with a passion for his craft matched only by his talent, Koji's restaurant is in decline since a new sushi spot opened up down the street and started stealing away attention and clientele. Takashi is a brilliant protege, a young man too respectful of the elder generation to fully display his own abilities, despite the insistence of his hip-hop-styled assistant, Nobu, and the punked-out Ama, who's struggling to make her own way in a man's world. Kimber Lee's tokyo fish story, playing at TheatreWorks' Lucie Stern Theatre in Palo Alto, is a collision of gender, generations and tradition. Don't miss this thoughtful, heartfelt and humorous play that features a sushi-making ritual that will dazzle you (and probably have you heading straight to the nearest sushi restaurant as soon as the show is over).
