Really tough times right now. Please take care of yourselves.
I'm deeply honored to have been recently elected as Treasurer of the Dramatists Guild, along with Amanda Green (our first female President), Branden Jacobs-Jenkins as VP and Kristoffer Diaz as Secretary. We each are breaking a barrier over at the Guild and I couldn't be prouder to serve alongside these brilliant writers and leaders! To read more, here's the press release.
Thanks for tuning in to see me guest starring on episode 710 of NCIS: NEW ORLEANS (which aired on February 28) and my return to BULL as "Judge Conway" in episode 511 (which aired on April 12). I loved being back on set so much, and look forward to more this year.
I've been doing tons of interviews, panels and discussions surrounding these tumultuous times and ongoing efforts to #StopAAPIHate. Here is one that I did alongside Leslie Ishii, with Gordon Cox for Variety
On a lighter note, it was a joy to join the effervescent Michael Kushner on his podcast Dear Multi-hyphenate, where we talked all thing multi-hyphenate! It will be available on the Broadway Podcast Network during the week of April 12.
My play EMPRESS MEI LI LOTUS BLOSSOM won Abingdon Theatre Company's Short Play Festival award in October and I'm so honored and thrilled to join them as an Artist-in-Residence this year. They're helping me host a free Watch Party and Talkback of the film version of this piece on Tuesday, May 25 at 7 pm EST to help celebrate Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month. Thank you, to the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (Creative Engagement and UMEZ Engagement) for the grant support!

Season 2 of TALKBACK, the podcast I host for the Dramatists Guild is available on the Broadway Podcast Network and other listening platforms of your choice! This season we talk about access, from many different points of view. I hope you enjoy!
New York Theatre Barn recently hosted my collaborator Jason Ma & I in their New Works Series to talk about our new musical BROKEN GROUND, commissioned by Village Theatre. You can watch the episode here. I'll be hosting a round table for them on March 24 about Women in the Theatre.
I'm also super proud to share this song that I wrote with Kim Sherman & Scott Killian last Fall in support of the Biden Harris campaign. Spoken word section is by Notorious Pink. Sung and played by members of the Broadway community.
Peace and Love to All.
