The Wong Street Journal says
A new solo theater work written and performed by performance artist and comedian Kristina Wong, combining self-skewering personal narrative with a hilarious interrogation of America's legacy on the rest of the world.

The Wong Street Journal tells the true story of how Wong, as a not-so-white savior, became a hip hop star in Northern Uganda. Part plushy TED lecture, part amateur hip-hop extravaganza, and part travelogue, The Wong Street Journal breaks down the complexities of global poverty, privilege and economic theory using uneasy-to-read charts, live hashtag wars, and riveting slideshows from post-conflict Northern Uganda. All of this plays against an all felt version of the New York Stock Exchange that Wong sewed with her own hands.
