Going Green the Wong Way
E3, the largest sustainability organization at UCLA, and UCLA GSA's Sustainable Resource Center proudly present comedian Kristina Wong's "Going Green the Wong Way" performance.
Wednesday, April 10, 2013
8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Kristina Wong’s hilarious show "Going Green the Wong Way" is coming to UCLA fresh off of a second international tour of Europe and a whirlwind tour last year through the US!
"Going Green the Wong Way" brings our contemporary urban environment to life, revealing just how tricky it is to “do the right thing.” Based on UCLA Alum Kristina Wong’s true-life adventures, but elevated to surrealist heights, the production takes us from Kristina’s confrontational 6th grade science project, to her wandering years as a missionary of recycling, to her true calling as Los Angeles’ patron martyr of carbon-free living.
WHEN & WHERE
The show takes place at UCLA's Schoenberg Music Hall and goes from 8:00-9:30pm, followed by a 15-20 min Q&A session.
**Doors open at 7:45pm**
This event is FREE, and open to the public. Priority admission will be given to individuals who have RSVP'd, though individuals who want to attend may also come the day of without having RSVP'd.

“Going Green the Wong Way might be one of the most ridiculous shows we’ve ever seen, and we mean that in the best of ways…. Wong took a seemingly overworked topic like sustainable living and turned it into a surrealist, hilarious ride.” – Miami New Times
