Asian American Actor Survey:http://kwiksurveys.com/?u=representasian
Here’s a great blog post by Randy Gener that features some of the illuminating statistics we have gathered on minority representation in NYC stages:
This is not an Asian issue. All minorities are still under-represented. We need the entire industry to come together to discuss how best we can overcome obstacles to more inclusive casting.
Join us for an industry roundtable with prominent producers, artistic directors, directors, playwrights, agents and casting directors to have a dialogue on access and representation of minority actors on NYC stages and how best to overcome obstacles to more inclusive casting. It will be co-presented with Fordham University and moderated by Tony Award-winning playwright David Henry Hwang. Please feel free to invite any and all people who you think would be interested in joining the discussion.
