    "Miki Yamashita has a beautiful voice and effortless delivery…"
    ---The New York Times

    "In ‘The Geisha Next Door,’ Miki Yamashita has conjured up the rarest of one-woman shows:
    when it’s over, you actually want more of her."
    --- John Markus, Emmy Award-winning producer, The Cosby Show, The Larry Sanders Show

    " ‘The Geisha Next Door’ is very funny, smart, brave, and unexpectedly moving. Like its author and star, it’s a wonderful gift in a small package."
    --- Mark O’Donnell, Tony Award-winning co-author, Hairspray

    "If a geisha were ever to move next door to me, I would definitely want her to be Miki Yamashita!"
    --- Jeff Stilson, Emmy Award-winning head writer, The Chris Rock Show

    "Miki Yamashita is the answer to the question ‘What if Jon Stewart were trapped in the body of
    Ziyi Zhang?’"
    --- Steve O’Donnell, four-time Emmy Award-winning writer, Seinfeld,
    and head writer, The Late Show with David Letterman
