National Asian Artists Project celebrated its 5th Anniversary of "showcasing the work of Asian-American theatre artists through performance, outreach and educational programming" on October 5th at 8pm at NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts (56 LaGuardia Place) with PAST, PRESENT & FUTURE, a one-night-only Gala Benefit evening featuring a line-up of show-stopping wall-to-wall musical numbers from Broadway shows, highlights from past NAAP productions and current material, as well as what Baayork Lee hopes to stage in the future.

BroadwayWorld has photos from the after-party at Hop Kee Restuarant below! Plus, click here for images of the gala performances!

With a cast of over 100 supervised by Ms. Lee and acclaimed director Richard Jay-Alexander, the evening featured seasoned Broadway professionals -- friends and supporters of NAAP -- staging many of the numbers. With a full orchestra led by Broadway musical supervisor and conductor Kevin Stites and lighting & sound design by Matt Berman, this was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to support this worthy company as they head into the future.
