About Tiger Style!

Squabbling siblings Albert and Jennifer Chen reached the pinnacle of academic achievement. But as adults, they’re epic failures: he’s just been passed up for promotion and she’s been dumped by her loser boyfriend. So, naturally, they confront their parents and launch an Asian Freedom Tour! From California to China, this hilarious new comedy examines race, parenting, and success with wit and sharp humor.

Approximate run time: 2 hours including one 10-minute intermission.

Seating at select performances of Tiger Style! is limited, but seats are released every day for sale. Please call the Huntington Box Office at 617 266 0800 to learn about our Advanced Wait List and be upgraded to a seat automatically when it becomes available.



Mike Lew“I've been dying to work at the Huntington for years now. I keep falling in love with the plays that originate there, and it's with the Huntington’s spirit of bold new work in mind that I'm delighted to share Tiger Style! This is a deeply personal play about my Chinese American upbringing that wrestles with 'Asian tiger parenting,' Ivy League burnout, and the line between the cultural baggage we carry within us versus the cultural preconceptions heaped upon us. I can't wait to share it with Boston!” — Mike Lew
Tiger Style! will hit the sweet spot — it is both sidesplittingly funny and intellectually rich. I became a major fan of the play after our Breaking Ground reading in 2014 and knew we had to produce it. Mike Lew has written a sharp and original comedy about generational differences, cultural heritage, and race in America today, and I can’t wait to bring Boston audiences along for the ride”— Peter DuBois
