Happy New Year! (It's still new, right?)
Wishing us all a happy, healthy(!), and prosperous 2024!
Coming up on March 4 at 7 pm and 9:30 pm EST, I'm co-hosting 2 concerts at 54Below in NYC with Amanda Green that will feature songs all written by women songwriters who also serve on the Dramatists Guild Council. The line up is amazing! Amanda and I will be singing something (really cute!) together to open the show and I will also be debuting a song I wrote with David Shenton that we wrote together back during our days at BMI. The 7 pm show will also be live-streamed, and you can see who's involved and get tickets to either show and/or the live-stream here.
In other news:
I'm thrilled to be collaborating with composer Cecilia Lin and director Gabriel Barre on FUSONG, a new musical that is an adaptation of a powerful novel by Geling Yan. We're gearing up for an industry presentation in April, and I'm truly excited to see where we will share this story!
I'm honored to be one of the inaugural recipients of a Catalyst for Change Fellowship from the Dramatists Guild Foundation, to create The Asian American Theatre Artists Collective. You can follow us at @aatheatreartists on instagram as we roll out initiatives to amplify and illuminate AAPI theatre artists across all disciplines.
I continue to be deeply honored to be serving as Treasurer of the Dramatists Guild, along with Amanda Green (our first female President), Branden Jacobs-Jenkins as VP and Kristoffer Diaz as Secretary. To read more, here's the press release.
Seasons 1,2, 3, 4, and 5 of the podcast that I host for the Guild, "The Dramatists Guild presents Talkback" are available to listen to on the Broadway Podcast Network, Apple, and Spotify. Season 6 is in pre-production.
Peace and Love to All.
