Second Stage Theatre Uptown has now announced a 1-week extension for the world premiere of Chisa Hutchinson's drama Somebody's Daughter, directed by May Adrales, which began previews at the McGinn/Cazale Theatre on May 23, 2017, and is scheduled to officially open on June 6, with a limited engagement now through to June 25, 2017 (instead of June 18).

Synopsis: "Alex is a fifteen year old Asian-American girl going to extremes to get her own mother to notice her. She's a dream child - except to her parents who wish she was a boy. Luckily she finds a sympathetic ear in Kate, her irreverent guidance counselor who knows all too well what it's like to walk in Alex's shoes. As three generations of women find their identity in question, each needs to decide who makes the rules and what happens when you break them."

The cast of Somebody's Daughter includes Vanessa Kai (as Millie Chan), Collin Kelly-Sordelet (as Russ Mitchell), Michelle Heera Kim (as Alex Chan), Rodney Richardson (as Reggie Ward), David Shih (as Richard Chan) and Jenna Yi (as Kate Wu).

The creative team behind Somebody's Daughter features scenic design by Lee Savage, costume design by Sara Ryung Clement, lighting design by Seth Reiser and sound design by Kate Marvin.
