Created by Cleo Gray and Bobby Foley, Asian and... is an organization dedicated to millennial Asian American theater artists creating, producing, and promoting new works that tell truthful stories and promote ethnic diversity on NYC stages. This project was created as a direct response to the issues of underrepresentation of ethnic artists and stories, most recently addressed at the AAPAC (Asian American Performers Action Coalition) roundtable and open forums.

The goal of this event was to raise awareness for the project and connect to an extended group of artists throughout the community. The evening featured readings from a diverse collection of NYC playwrights by some of the city's most talented actors. The readings were attended by an enthusiastic audience of over 150 guests. A reception followed, sponsored by Asahi Beer USA.

Associate produced by Stephen Stout, Satomi Blair, and Josephine Huang, the evening featured works by Christine Toy Johnson (All American Eyes), Lauren Yee (Ching Chong Chinaman), Dustin Chinn (Ma-Yi Writer's Lab), Nandita Shenoy (Ma-Yi Writer's Lab), Donaldo Prescod (#serials@theflea), Daniel Ho (Don Quixote at Tiananmen Square), christopher oscar peña (however long the night), Kitty Chen (Eating Chicken Feet), Angela Hanks (EST/Youngblood), Marisa Marquez (Gated), and Leah Nanako Winkler (EST/Youngblood).

Participating directors included Ed Sylvanus Iskandar, Andrei Nikolai Pamintuan, Colette Robert, Christine Toy Johnson, Brian Lee Huynh, and Tom Dugdale.
