“And now, at long last, we are getting Asian Americans who are creative artists coming forward as writers, as composer/lyricists, and as trained actors. I think the emergence of Asian-American creative artists—into the theatrical arena, onto the theatrical stage—is what’s making the difference. In every arena too—whether it’s politics or commerce or literature—Asians are now defining our own image and telling our own stories, from our vantage point, in our voices. And I think that’s what’s making American theatre and American literature that much richer.” —George Takei, American Theatre
