What’s next for you?
I’ll be hosting a new webisode called ‘Broadway 101’ with a Non-Profit theatre organization, Lotus Lee Foundation who is partnered with Lotus Lee Drama Studios, a pioneer of theatre in China. ‘Broadway 101’ is a video series that introduces Broadway and New York working artists to the Chinese audience. I will be having an exclusive episode with them following my day in New York as an actress.
