THEATER MU’S LONGEST RUNNING TRADITION
New Eyes Festival, has become a much-anticipated annual series of staged readings of new works from Asian American playwrights, like Prince Gomolvilas, Jessica Huang, Lloyd Suh, Katie Ka Vang, and Leah Nanako Winkler. The festival acts as an artistic incubator for thoughts and ideas looking to be born onto the stage.
This year, as a response to the rising violence against Asian and Asian American communities, the New Eyes Festival will consist of a series of original ten-minute virtual plays written by local and nationally recognized playwrights with ties to Theater Mu and the Twin Cities, including Aditi Brennan Kapil, Carla Ching, Isabella Dawis, Saymoukda Duangphouxay Vongsay, and Lisa Marie Rollins.
This event will be broadcast through Theater Mu’s private and secure streaming platform. A minimum of one ticket per household is required to watch the show. All tickets are free.
Friday, May 21 at 7:00pm CST: Watch our Mu-tini Hour, hosted by Lily Tung Crystal, on Facebook LIVE. Meet producer Katie Hae Leo and the playwrights.
Saturday, May 22 at 7:00pm CST: Then, join us for the LIVE performances, broadcast on Theater Mu’s private streaming platform.
Sunday, May 23 - Saturday, May 29: The live performances will be recorded and available to watch on-demand for one week.
These plays are being developed with the support of Theater Mu and the Playwrights’ Center. Aditi Brennan Kapil’s piece was commissioned by Company One Theatre for its Acts of Joy program in 2021.
