Tokyo Fish Story
Kimber Lee's gentle drama dramatizes a changing of the guard. For decades, Koji has been a shokunin -- a master -- at sushi. Now his restaurant's in decline, and he won't change his trusted ways. His son, Takashi has the skills, and new ideas for the business, but is reticent to force a change. The play serves up big moments in small portions. Perhaps because of this, the Old Globe production has a micro-concern for details, selecting appropriate fish, massaging an imaginary octopus. Beneath the rich details, and practically a seminar in communication theory, the play moves in predictable ways. Worth a try.
