AAPAC won an OBIE!

My advocacy group, The Asian American Performers Action Coalition, received a Special Obie Citation in July 2020 for advocacy in the field of equity, diversity and inclusion, "for their important and necessary contribution to the American theater." Acceptance speech below!


Welcome! I grew up in Queens, NY and was lucky enough to have parents who took me to Broadway shows as a child. We moved to California while I was still in high school, which is where I found my fellow "theater kids." There I performed in community theater and graduated from San Francisco’s School of the Arts. I then received my BFA in Acting from Boston University's School of Theatre and stayed east. I settled down in Manhattan, fulfilling a childhood dream and instilling myself into the theater community I so admired as a child. I've performed off-Broadway at institutions such as The Public Theater, New York Theatre Workshop, Rattlestick Playwrights Theater, and Ma-Yi Theater Company. My active regional theater career has taken me to Baltimore Center Stage and Olney Theatre Center in Maryland, Studio Theatre in DC, and Diversionary Theatre in San Diego, among others. My husband, director Nelson T. Eusebio III, and I frequently collaborate on projects near and dear to our hearts; our short films INS & Outs and Two Weeks have screened around the country and on television.
