Enter Kim’s Convenience Store and meet the Kims, a loving, if imperfect, Korean family making their way in Toronto. In this award-winning play, the Kims face gentrification, a growing generation gap, and the threat of a new chain-store opening as they debate the future of their convenience store. Through it all parents Sang-Il, Yong-mi, their unmarried daughter Janet, and disappointing son Jung, learn to see each other in a new light. This hilarious and heartwarming story (recently turned into a Netflix sitcom) reminds us that family isn’t always convenient, but it might be the best deal out there.

we care deeply about the health and safety of our patrons, artists, staff, and community at large. We are joining venues nationally, and across the Puget Sound region to require our audiences, artists, and staff to provide proof that they are fully vaccinated or show proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours sourced by a professional test provider (for all ages who are not vaccinated) to attend all public, indoor performances. Further, all patrons will be required to wear masks indoors.

Our goals are to keep everyone safe and healthy while doing our part to stop the transmission of the virus. We will accept documentation at the door the day of the performance including vaccine cards or 72-hour negative test results (including photos/copies or verified electronic methods) along with photo ID.

Tacoma Arts Live will regularly monitor Health Guidelines and update these procedures as needed. Please visit our website or contact our box office with any questions.
