Brian Shimasaki Liebson

"It’s funny to say this, because it should be obvious, but one thing that we’re really proud about is that every Asian character is played by an actor of Asian descent. It sounds ridiculous that I should have to say that at all, but it’s great that it’s actually true in our cast. In order to do that, they held auditions across the US, Canada, and Manilla. We have international actors who are Korean, Vietnamese, Japanese, Filipino, Chinese, and Thai. I’m just very happy to do a show that I think currently shows off Asian people not in a racist light anymore. We’ve had some updates with our revival that really give good stories and characters to all the Asian characters in the show. I think it’s something we’re all really proud to share."
