About Comfort Women

"Comfort Women: A New Musical" revolves around a young Korean woman, Goeun, who was promised a job in Japan, but is soon transported to Indonesia as one of the Comfort Women - women who were sold as sex slaves for the Imperial Japanese Army during WWII. The story explores how such a tragedy can permanently and painfully transform the life of a young woman. As the first ever all-Asian Off-Broadway cast led by an East Asian director, the show sold out in 2015. It was also nominated for Best Off-Broadway Musical by BroadwayWorld.
