The Censorship Issue of The Dramatist
Lauren Yee: Ten Questions
Lauren Yee

1What was your most memorable theatrical experience as a child?

When I was seven or eight, my aunt got sick the day she was supposed to see Les Misérables, so my uncle took me instead. I don’t know how I managed to sit through the whole thing, but above all, I remember that turntable!


2Is there a production you wish you’d seen?

The Pillowman. I’ve never seen it in production!
