Mga Kasabihan/Words of Wisdom — Let’s Buy Some Boats!

17 Feb

nvc-logoTonight is the night!

Join me and the rest of the Ma-Yi Writers Lab for our one-night only benefit to provide relief for victims of Hurricane Yolanda/Typhoon Haiyan. We’ve put together an emotional, thoughtful, and hilarious evening of short plays that will showcase new Asian-American acting talent and raise awareness about the still troubled people in the Philippines who lost their lives and livelihoods to the storm.

We had a soul-stirring run through last night, and I couldn’t be more proud of what the playwrights, directors, and actors have put together. I’m not used to leading any charges and all that jazz, so I am beyond proud that what is going to be such an amazing event will be the first event I got to support as newly-appointed Co-Director of the Ma-Yi Writers Lab.

All proceeds for the evening go the The Negrense Volunteers for Change, who will use the funds to build new fishing boats so Filipinos can go back to work and start rebuilding their communities in the wake of the storm. The ticket link will be up until this afternoon here. Check out the details (including a wine reception, raffle prizes, and free yoga classes) on Facebook or the Ma-Yi website. Read about the benefit on Broadway World here. Or just walk up to Playwrights Horizons, 416 West 42nd Street, at 6:30pm tonight and buy a ticket or make a donation for the 7:00 pm show.
