1937 Tokyo—An American silent film about a Japanese immigrant is live-narrated by a celebrated Benshi whose existence is being threatened by the impending arrival of the talkies. Ten years later, he will survive under US occupation as a street performer, desperately attempting to finish this story. Admiration and resistance, dreams and survival, Club Diamond is a modern take on the immigration tale. 

Nikki Appino is an award-winning theatre and filmmaker. Saori Tsukada has been described as a “charismatic mover” (Backstage) and a “startlingly precise dancer” (New York Times). Club Diamond was developed in collaboration with violinist Tim Fain. 

All orders subject to $3 per ticket service fee and $1.50 per ticket facility fee. There is a $5 fee for UTR packs. Service fees for single tickets are waived at the Box Office window. All fees are waived for Public Theater Members and Partners. Plays, titles, actors, directors, and performance dates and times are subject to change. All sales are final, no refunds or cancellations.
