The Knick Final Episode – Crutchfield reviews and Ping Wu.

Wow! I totally enjoyed watching Crutchfield – the final episode of the Knick.

Barrow comes to Ping Wu

Here are a few reviews that mentions my character Ping Wu:

“Wu is as awesomely terrifying as he is overly exoticized. As intoxicating as it is, the Wu scenes are a little ‘30s serial.” – By Brandon Nowalk, A.V. Club

“Wu moves through the offices with the skill of a surgeon, slicing throats, perforating internal organs, and finally planting a hatchet into Collier’s face from across the room. He’s efficient and effective in a way Thack and Edwards are on their best days, but what set’s Wu apart is his goal: he actually wants his patients to die.

Perhaps there’s something to be said for Wu’s expediency, both in terms of how he flips the script on Barrow and how he doesn’t let anyone suffer…

“but there’s no denying the entertainment value of a good ole chainmail n’ hatchet action scene. Naturally, Herman being Herman, the whole escapade only makes things worse, since he’s now indebted to a homicidal kung fu master.”

It got a little hot in the den in last night’s Golden Lotus episode of The Knick.

Fred Ho’s Memorial at BAM Cafe Oct 3.

I went to Fred Ho’s memorial celebration at the BAM Cafe last night. Fred was one of the first innovators of cultural fusion in the arts. He mixed Asian instruments with American jazz to tell new stories of America from a non Eurocentric perspective. It was bold and rockin. It was fresh. It was sexy. Fred will continue to be one of my main inspirations. Below is a cast shot of Deadly She-Wolf Assassin at Armaggedon at La Mama April 2013.  It was one of funnest shows I’ve had the pleasure of performing in in over twenty years of doing theater in New York City. Knowing Fred, I sure he’s wreaking havoc in the after life.    fredhoshewolf2
