Landmark Asian American Theatre Company Turns 30

Nice piece in yesterday's New York Times on the 30th anniversary of Tisa Chang's Pan Asian Repertory Theatre:

“Our mission has always been to provide meaningful professional opportunities and to introduce the Pan Asian world’s literary works to Americans in America and also to create intercultural projects that draw upon our own history,” Ms. Chang said. “We have done Cambodian genocide, Japanese internment, dislocation — basically the acmes and nadirs of Asian-Americans in America.”

Currently showing: "Tea," by hapa playwright Velina Hasu Houston. Drink up!

Mad props to Miss Houston! I checked Velina's bio and at the bottom of the page she has my favorite Japanese saying quoted... ichigo ichie!
