Lauren Yee’s newest work The Great Leap (November 6 to December 1, 2019) explores the story of an American basketball team traveling to Beijing for an exhibition game. The coaches find themselves in a conflict that runs deeper than the strain between the countries, and a young player’s actions abroad become the accidental focus of attention. Building tension right up to the buzzer, this sharp-witted new drama is about much more than making the shot, as two men with a past and one teen with a future struggle for their own personal victories. The Great Leap starred BD Wong (Jurassic Park films, HBO’s Oz, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) at the Atlantic Theatre off-Broadway and in San Francisco at ACT. The Tony Award winner will now direct the Pasadena Playhouse production presented in partnership with the Pasadena Playhouse.
