There will be two performances of the show this week during the Third Annual National Asian American Theater Festival in Los Angeles.  It’s not everyday you get a Hmong-American writer, playwright and community activist from the Twin Cities to take you into her quasi-autobiographical world of sexuality, toys, and obsession of British period romances.  And apparently, there are parallels between the porn hustle and the artistic hustle.

During this candid conversation from the aspiring romance novel writer, we come to an “It’s weird that I’m telling you this right now” moment.  We get politically incorrect and talk about what it takes to write more honestly, why the Midwest is coming up, and how the Chinese just can’t avoid having a superiority complex (Jenny shrugs). Oh. And Jenny’s Mom makes an unexpected cameo.

Episode 5 Community Sponsor: The 3rd National Asian American Theater Conference and Festival. Check out all the amazing shows this week and celebrate the National Asian American Theater Conference and Festival in Los Angeles from June 16-26, 2011. The event will be presented by the Consortium of Asian American Theaters and Artists (CAATA) and hosted by Asian American Theaters East West Players and TeAda Productions, both residing in Los Angeles.  The theme for this year’s joint conference and festival is NEW DIRECTIONS citing transitional shifts in theater at all levels and an emerging generation of voices rising in the Asian American community.

    It is really interesting about her, I think she is right she cannot be porn star, I really wish to talk about Asian American personality his name is by Charles Wang . He also contributed for Asian American Culture. He founded Charles B. Wang center in New York for cultural activities.

    • Jenny Yang says :

      Never heard of Charles Wang. Thanks Rick for the tip! I think May Lee-Yang’s humor is spot on. Real tongue in cheek stuff with the porn star show. Hope you can catch it if you are in the Twin Cities area!
