asian american performers action coalition presents representasian: the changing face of theatre, february 13

The Asian American Performers Action Coalition's recent findings that people of color are underrepresented in NYC's biggest stages should not be all that shocking. What sucks the most is that although the industry has made great strides in the past five years in getting equal-ish stage time for everyone, Asians still lose. Asians comprise 13% of New York City and are the city's fastest growing minority group, yet are seen less than 2% of the time, and usually in roles that are defined by race.

On Monday, February 13, Chinglish playwright David Henry Hwang moderates "RepresentAsian: The Changing Face of New York Theater" at Fordham University to discuss what we can do about it:
