Zach is currently in Alpena, Michigan, playing Vinnie in Thunder Bay Theatre's production of The Odd Couple, by Neil Simon.

"This classic comedy opens as a group of the guys assemble for cards in the apartment of divorced Oscar Madison. And if the mess is any indication, it's no wonder that his wife left him. Late to arrive is Felix Unger, who has just been separated from his wife. Fastidious, depressed, and none too tense, Felix seems suicidal, but as the action unfolds, Oscar becomes the one with murder on his mind when the clean freak and the slob ultimately decide to room together with hilarious results."

Zach is proud to be part of a staged reading of Citizen Wong, a new play by David Chang directed by Ernest Abuba.

Citizen Wong follows the life of Wong Chin Foo, a Chinese-American political activist in the late 19th century. He advocated against anti-immigration and deportation legislation targeting Chinese railroad workers and their families, closely mirroring current legislation in place against Mexican families.

Zach is playing multiple roles, the most prominent being the investor-banker, amoral political opportunist, and despicable husband Vincent Wells.

Citizen Wong will be presented at the Museum of Chinese in America 6pm on Friday, September 21, and at Flushing Town Hall 2pm on Monday, September 23. Tickets for $10 available here and here.

Zach will be reprising his role as "Me" in the American-English translationFrench playwright David Lescot's work, Dough.

Dough follows the life of "Me" from his birth to his funeral preparations, but focused solely on the fiscal aspects of his life. Zach only plays "Me," but the other 30+ roles are taken on by only two other actors.

This performance is part of Princeton's 7th French Theater Festival. More information and free ticket reservations are available here.
