Second Stage Theatre Uptown has now announced complete casting for the world premiere of Chisa Hutchinson's drama Somebody's Daughter, directed by May Adrales, which will begin previews at the McGinn/Cazale Theatre on May 23, 2017, before an official opening on June 6 and a limited engagement through to June 18, 2017.

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

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."
