- Still another casting call
Currently seeking Asian American Actors for an independent feature film, BETTER LUCK TOMORROW by Justin Lin (SHOPPING FOR FANGS).
There are numerous roles, but at the moment, casting is for principles (below are descriptions of the roles).
BETTER LUCK TOMORROW (film/video to 35mm) is a visually frenetic, stylish and intellectually driven drama about a group of Asian American youth whose lives intertwine as they transform from school nerds to sociopaths.
BETTER LUCK TOMORROW is neither restrained nor quiet, but very much loud, rude, controversial and non-apologetic. It will outrage many and prompt audiences to think. The film aggressively resists and defies all defintitions and stereotypes of the Asian American film genre.
If interested please send a headshot/resume to:

100% HUMAN HAIR
directed by Ann Kaneko
a UCLA MFA Directing grad
100% HUMAN HAIR is a 15-minute, action-packed musical set in a wig shop in the heart of ethnically diverse Los Angeles. It is the story of Mr. Kim who struggles to keep his shop open as business declines. His daughter, a successful, yuppy businesswoman, wants her father to shut his shop and retire, but he remains loyal to his motley crew of employees and customers. His granddaughter also rallies to his support, and they all come up with the innovative solution of putting the shop on-line. This film should be a blast with music in all kinds of musical styles.
The film shoots in July or August (still setting dates). A Korean speaker is a plus. This is a great opportunity for someone looking for experience and credit. I am looking for a producer to help me through the whole process of pre-production, production and post. (I need help raising money!)

- More Asian Americans on Broadway
VARIETY reports that David Henry Hwang's revision of Rodgers & Hammerstein's Flower Drum Song will be part of the Ahmanson Theater's 2000-2001 season in Los Angeles. Sources close to the production say that this will be just an initial production, with stops in at least two more cities before ending up, eventually, on Broadway. Prior to this opening at L.A.'s Music Center theater, the musical will receive a workshop production in September in New York or Los Angeles.
Previously, this classic musical about Chinese Americans in1950s San Francisco had received a reading last October in New York. Variety quotes Hwang as saying "My approach has been to write a new work which has a relationship to the old. It seemed to be a great opportunity to investigate a Chinese-American subject."
Announcement of this project came right on the heels of Hwang's collaboration with Linda Woolverton and Robert Falls on the book for the Elton John-Tim Rice musica, Aida, which just opened on Broadway under the production of Disney's Hyperion Theatre.
Hammerstein shared the book credit on "Flower Drum Song" with Joseph Fields. They had adapted it from the novel by C.Y. Lee. According to Hwang, his book for the musical is closer in tone and subject matter to the original source material.
