solo show and essay

Happy New Year, everyone!  I hope 2014 will be your best year yet.

Quick update on my creative projects of late: I've been invited to perform my solo show, ALIEN CITIZEN: An Earth Odyssey, at Princeton University and M.I.T. next month. It has also been chosen as the closing keynote address at the Families in Global Transition (FIGT) conference in Virginia in March. These are all wonderful honors and I am thrilled to be taking the show on the road!  It had its world premiere in Hollywood in May 2013--I'm happy to say that the 5-week run was a success. It then opened the 8th Annual Women at Work Festival Off Off Broadway in September. So I'm very happy and grateful that it continues to have a life.

I also wanted to belatedly announce the publication of my essay, "Transforming Three Sisters: A Hapa Family in Chekhov's Modern Classic," in the peer-reviewed scholarly journal Asian American Literature: Discourses & Pedagogies.  You can download it here:

Thank you as always for your continued support of Hapa Happy Hour and its co-hosts!

Cheers,

Lisa
