Watch The Brothers Sun
It’s sibling power at its finest! When the head of a powerful Taiwanese triad is shot by a mysterious assassin, his eldest son, legendary killer Charles “Chairleg” Sun heads to Los Angeles to protect his mother, Eileen, and his naive younger brother, Bruce, who’s been completely sheltered from the truth of his family until now. But as Taipei’s deadliest societies and a new rising faction go head-to-head for dominance, Charles, Bruce and their mother must heal the wounds caused by their separation and figure out what brotherhood and family truly mean before one of their countless enemies kills them all.

Cast members in attendance included Michelle Yeoh, Justin Chien, Sam Song Li, Highdee Kuan, Joon Lee, Alice Hewkin, Jon Xue Zhang, Jenny Yang and Madison Hu, as well as creators, writers and executive producers Brad Falchuk and Byron Wu.
See Spamalot The Musical On Broadway
If you always look on the bright side of life, Spamalot The Musical is the Broadway show for you! A musical comedy extravaganza, it’s based on the Monty Python film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, with a little bit of Life of Brian thrown And it’s full of delightfully silly shenanigans! Newly crowned King Arthur (James Monroe Iglehart) assembles a band of misfit knights for a quest to find the Holy Grail. Hilarious hijinks ensue as they follow God’s instructions (sometimes delivered by divine Spam) through ridiculous challenges, singing and dancing the whole way. Expect Monty Python’s signature brand of absurd humor, wordplay and musical parody, along with silly costumes, nonsensical jokes and plenty of references to the movie. But beneath the silliness, Spamalot has a surprisingly sweet message about friendship and self-discovery, and of course, looking on the bright side of life—even when faced with a killer rabbit! If you loved Monty Python, like TV DivaGal’s plus-one to the show, you’ll get all the Easter eggs that abound. The music itself is fun and silly, with all the melodic tropes you’ve come to love in musicals: a love song, a soulful female ballad and one I’m still not sure I’m supposed to laugh showstopper!
