Asian Americans ask themselves, how do we fully represent ourselves and our culture despite being termed the “model minority”? Hear from industry and educational professionals, playwrights, and artists, both on and off Broadway to ask, are we fully represented now? Now that AAPI folx finally see themselves in leading roles and stories onstage, where do we go from here? We’ll ask questions about the struggles of representation and reception in American audiences and how we can find new pathways to spread Asian joy with those same audiences moving forward.
