Lee (Aladdin, Groundhog Day, Soft Power, Anything Goes, Mamma Mia!, , and Tony-winning playwright David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly, Aida, Soft Power, Flower Drum Song).
Telly Leung explains, “Elliott Masie and I have co-hosted 28 of these EMPATHY concerts and conversations, and this upcoming event will be something that hits very close to home for me. We’ve invited some dear and accomplished members of the Asian Broadway community to shed light on the unsettling increase in hate crimes against Asians during the pandemic and explore ways we can use art and storytelling to create empathy. Empathy is our strongest weapon to combat ignorance, fear, and hate.”
