Members of the cast of “Here Lies Love” performed “I Am A Child of the Phillipines.”
Trip Cullman, a director who mostly works Off Broadway, has cast several Asian-American actors, including Sue Jean Kim and Maureen Sebastian, in roles that were not explicitly Asian.
“I like it when the casting of a play reflects my experience of the world around me,” said Mr. Cullman, who is white. “Expanding my collaborators’ notions of who could be ‘right for a role’ seems to me to be a moral and political duty.”
A REALLY good article on Asian/American representation and presence in mainstream theatre. Definitely worth the read!
THIS SHOW. A DREAM JOB. See you at@herelieslovenyc! :)
