The Legend of Tokyo Rose
Based on a True Story

"The trial and conviction of Iva Toguri d'Aquino may have been one of the most egregious miscarriages of justice in American legal history. ...if Iva was a victim of injustice, it was because she was also victim of a legend. In 1945 she had become identified as Tokyo such person ever existed..."
- Masayo Duus

Written and directed by Glenn Conner Johnson, the play stars Momo Yashima as Iva Toguri/The Legend and features music by Tom Kurai, director of the Taiko Center of Los Angeles.
