Watch (below) TEA, WITH MUSIC’s Joan Almedilla perform on Kababayan LA.

Joan Almedilla plays “Himiko Hamilton,” a strong, but fragile woman worn down by circumstances of war and of domestic abuse, and is the reason why the other Japanese war brides gather together once again. Almedilla is an alum of the East West Players stage, which include ROAD TO SAIGON and KRUNK FU BATTLE BATTLE. Her musical theater credits also include MISS SAIGON (Broadway), LES MISERABLES, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, and THE KING & I to name a few.
