Artistic Asian Runs on Shorts takes NYC crowd on an ‘Adventure’

Last Saturday, May 16, I got to direct “Adventure,” a short play by the very talented Mayumi Lane, as part of the Artistic Asian Runs on Shorts collaborative show at the DCTV Firehouse in New York City.

It was my second time directing in Manhattan and first time working with my good friend David Gazzo, an actor from Jersey City. He and NYC actress Adelyne Liu starred as Liam and Amy, an interracial couple that argues over whether or not to move to China. I’m proud to say the play was a big hit, and that the whole night went well, with awesome short plays and films by several other Asian-American artists.

Here are some shots from our rehearsals, which were held at the Brunswick Center in Jersey City, that Mayumi was gracious enough to shoot.
