Los Angeles Times- Recommended

"...In "Vietgone," playwright Qui Nguyen tells the story of how his parents met after escaping the Vietnam War and landing in the same resettlement camp in Arkansas. It's a tale of traumatic displacement written and performed with unstoppable comic verve that sneakily brings the reality of the refugee experience vividly to life."

"...Vietgone's Quang and Tong are back at South Coast Repertory and facing their not quite happily ever after in Qui Nguyen's laugh-and-rap-packed World Premiere comedy Poor Yella Rednecks."

Theatre Notes- Highly Recommended

"...Under the energetic direction of May Andrales, the action is kicked up with performances of passionate hip-hop rhymes and precision dancing throughout the show (Lawrence Kao hip-hop consultant), that adds immeasurably to the over-all excitement. Adding to the whiz in the bang of action, projections by Jared Mezzocchi flood the stage with colorful images."
