Asian American Theater Readings to Begin 6/9 at Second Stage Uptown

Second Generation Productions, a pioneering incubator and producer of Asian American theater, announced today (June 2) that 2g will launch the Second Stage Residency Series at Second Stage Uptown (Christopher Burney, Curator). This residency will feature readings of 2g's commissions by Anna Moench and Sung Rno & Aaron Jones on June 9 & 16 at 7:00pm, Second Stage Uptown - McGinn Cazale Theater - 2162 Broadway at 76th Street.

The Second Stage Residency Series at Second Stage Uptown has been created to support the rich diversity of New York City's emerging theatrical companies and provide them with a platform to bring their work to new audiences. "Victor Maog is a former Van Lier Directing Fellow at Second Stage Theatre, and it is a natural fit to start this series with 2g," said Christopher Burney, Curator of Second Stage Uptown. "I look forward to many summers showcasing the work of New York's most adventurous young companies and introducing wider audiences to these inventive artists."

2g Artistic Director Victor Maog states, "Second Stage Theatre, Artistic Director Carole Rothman, and Curator Chris Burney gave birth to my NYC directing career and this is just another example of their advocacy for excellence and inclusion in the city. We're honored to be the inaugural company to help expand the scope of what stories can be told on a major stage."

It's summer in the suburbs, and Wendy's father, Han, is arriving on a flight from China.

But when he arrives, everyone quickly realizes that picking up where they left off won't be easy. A multigenerational drama about the complexities of the Asian American experience.

A rock-mathematical-musical expression of the chaotic, brilliant, and all too brief life of Evariste Galois, who discovered a branch of mathematics as a precocious teenager, yet died in 1830's revolutionary Paris at 21 in a duel over a woman's love.
