New York Theater Company Comes to CenterStage


 Reston Community Center and local theater artist Tuyết Thị Phạm partner with Ping Chong and Company’s associate director Sara Zatz, to create an unforgettable teen performance, Generation Rise: Reston. It is Sat., March 25, at 8 p.m. at CenterStage310 Colts Neck Road, Reston.

The performing arts event depicts the experiences of five young Reston residents growing up during the pandemic: Robin Feldman, Carmah Owen, Rosa Simon, Semret Workut, and Natsu Zavala.  The cast is not  composed of professional actors, but Zatz and Pham have worked closely with the young locals to craft their portrayals of struggle and triumph. Tickets are $10 Reston/ $15 Non-Reston. 

"The work his company and our local team have created…surface the compelling stories of how we navigated these last traumatic years," RCC board chair Bev Cosham said. It is the final performing arts event of the Ping Chong/Tuyet Pham artist residency. 


Chong began his career as a theatre practitioner fifty years ago. “I am now in the process of retiring,” Chong said. “I am delighted to share this moment of transition here in Reston.”
