Asian American Theatre


Asian American Theatre
   While Chinese and Japanese stock characters appeared in plays of the period alongside other ethnic stereotypes, there was little that could be called Asian American legitimate drama. Amateur groups sprang up in Asian communities, but only in cities like New York and San Francisco were there professional troupes performing traditional music-based theatre.
