Citizen Who?

Who gets to claim the title "citizen"? In this acclaimed and affecting one-man performance, Eric Liu weaves storytelling, conversation, music, and theatricality into an imaginative exploration of the content and contradictions of American citizenship. This piece, a sensation in its Los Angeles and Phoenix premieres, leaves audiences seeing each other and their country with new eyes. Liu is founder of Citizen University and author of The Gardens of Democracy and The Accidental Asian.
