Cheeky Monkey Improvving for the 风马牛戏剧节 Press Event

As our lead Chinese actor has a day job (hey now, this is a “grass roots” theater festival, we can’t afford to poach him just yet!) and almost all of the good scenes involve him, we couldn’t do a scene from Iron Brothers for the Fengmaniu Theater Festival press event.

Introducing the Laowai Stars of 《无忧之城》

From left to right: Elyse, Jimi, Ted, and Ira Don’t be taken in by our lackadaisical air and smiling faces. We may look fun and happy and whatnot, but really we are killer spies working for evil aliens that want to steal magical Chinese artifacts from innocent Buddhist monks. (and now for a normal picture)
