Baayork Lee Is Presenting An All-Asian Version of Hello, Dolly!


One of the integral people from the original A Chorus Line, Baayork Lee is doing Hello, Dolly! with an all-Asian cast, for the National Asian Artists Project

Says the release: “With a cast of 20 of some of NY’s most talented Asian-American actors, this is an important step in opportunities for Asian-American actors to demonstrate that a great show only needs great people.

“Directed by Lee Roy Reams (director of the 1995 Broadway Carol Channing revival). April 29 & May 6″

Great! And now, if anyone wants to do an all-Caucasian version of Flower Drum Song, I’d have to say “Don’t.”

Or maybe just go ahead and surprise me.
