Announcing KPOP @ Ars Nova fall 2017

http://www.playbill.com/article/ars-nova-announces-musical-driven-new-season

So Jason Kim, Helen Park, the crazy theatre wizards @ Woodshed Collective (Teddy Bergman, Gabe Evansohn, and others), and I have spent the past 3 years developing this massive, insane undertaking known as "KPOP"

I am so F*cking excited to share this world we have created with you. I want to jump up and down in a swimming pool filled only with kimchi, and then slather snail slime on my face by the gallon while Big Bang's Fantastic Baby blasts in the background.

ARS NOVA/MA-Yi FALL 2017. 

We are looking to cast approximately 24821902 performers in this show. Are you a Korean, Korean-American, Asian and/or Asian-American performer who can slay the muthaf*cking house down with yr pop belting and fierce Hip Hop dance skillz? Plz send us a tape ASAP xo

30 Million Off-Broadway Debut! 

on May 13th, 30 Million (book by Jason Kim, music & lyrics by yrs truly) opened at Theatre Row in the Lion Theatre as a part of Keen Company's Keen Teens Festival. The cast rocked it out. All of my shitty middle and high school experiences have been retroactively vindicated :D

As in every musical I've ever been apart of, I found myself an hour before the show frantically making posters with every possible color of crayola marker I could get my hands on 'cuz UNNECESSARY PROPS MAGICALLY SOLVE ALL PROBLEMS.

Here with my theatre sistah Jason Kim, MD Lena Gabrielle, and genius choreographer Brad Landers.

And then American Theatre Magazine wrote this dope article about it:

Keen Teens is an amazing program. At this year's Keen Company Gala, using the music from 30 Million, we were able to raise a lot of money for next year. I'm grateful it will be able to continue to thrive and inspire.

AHHHHmerica from Co-op

From "CO-OP" a new musical I'm writing with Jason Kim (book)

I don't personally agree with the call to arms in this song. Violence just creates more violence, so please don't go blowin' shit up like these characters! But I do hope you see the increasing radicalization happening in this country and think "This is not my America."

Ars nova Concert Sold out! 

So excited for our Uncharted concert @ Ars Nova tomorrow on the 11th. This cast is insanely talented: Jo Lampert, Nick Blaemire, Chrissi Poland, Ray Lee, MJ Rodriguez, and Helen Park. As Ray Lee puts it, "I want to throw my shoe at all of you." Every time they sing, I pee a little. All of my underwear is ruined forever. 

Here's a little preview of them singing a song from KPOP! 

 

 

And also for all your blackmail needs. This video interview Jason & I shot for Ars Nova:
