Writing project #4 for February:  I’m participating in 2G’s production of 14: Instant Vaudeville.  I saw last year’s production (aptly named 13) and it was fantastic!  So I totally jumped at the chance when I was asked to contribute a monologue for the show.  More details below:

14: Instant Vaudeville – 3 Performances – Friday, 2/25 & Saturday 2/26

Official production page

The theme is “I Never…”
Over thirty Asian American artists crash-banging into each other.
The form is Vaudeville.
They are making these things over the course of a week.
There may be clowning, dance, songs, short plays,
hybrid theater and everything in between.
There will most certainly be mayhem. And possibly magic.

Featuring brand new work by Nora Chau, Samantha Chanse, Clarence Coo, Deen, Patricia Jang, Mrinalini Kamath, Kristine Haruna Lee, Victor Maog, Edgar Mendoza, Don Nguyen, Qui Nguyen, Matt Park, Lloyd Suh, and magic from Ruy Iskandar

Performances featuring Rajesh Bose, Cindy Cheung, Jackie Chung, Greta Lee, Mason Lee, Jennifer Lim, Ruy Iskandar, Angela Lin, Eugene Oh, Matt Park, Maureen Sebastian, and Nitya Vidyasagar, with special guest, Paco Tolson
