Asian American History 101

Thanks for tuning in to our podcast!

Nov 15, 2021

Welcome to Episode 58! Yes, we’re geeks who like fantasy, science fiction, superheroes, comic books, music, food and more. You can also add musical theatre to that list of things we love. In this episode, we take time to talk about the history of Asian Americans in musical theatre. Although there aren’t a plethora of Asian American stories being told on Broadway, there have been some notable individual performers in both Asian-specific and non-Asian-specific roles. We also bring back our segment on media called Accidentally Asian Pacific Positive. This time we highlight Eternals by the amazing storyteller and director Chloé Zhao. If you’re interested in statistics regarding representation on Broadway, we recommend the Visibility Report by the Asian American Performers Action Coalition. Be sure to check-out the East West Players as well. For fun, email us if you catch our atrocious mis-pronunciation of a Chinese instrument. Tell us what it was.
