The show places a bit of additional emphasis on Asian cultural elements with Japanese director Amon Miyamoto at the helm. Meanwhile, Filipino-American choreographers Keone and Mari Madrid relied on a blend of karate and hip-hop moves for the dance numbers. John Cardoza stars as karate kid Daniel LaRusso and Jovanni Sy plays his teacher, the inimitable Mr. Miyagi. The debut at Kirkwood Performing Arts Center received generally favorable reviews and the show is scheduled to run there through June 26. After that, the plan is to move to the big stage of Broadway.
