Whitewashing, exoticism, Orientalism and invisibility: this evening, CastAndLoose Live! returns to Joe’s Pub for its 6th installment, tackling everything the entertainment industry has to say (or not say) about Asian characters and performers.

Host Lynne Marie Rosenberg is joined by stars of the stage and screen as they read, verbatim, from Lynne’s terrible collection of real casting notices, as well as perform original response pieces written by members of the Ma-Yi Theater Company’s Writers Lab.

CastAndLoose will donate a portion of proceeds to the Asian American Performers Action Coalition. As always, come laugh at the problem while funding the solution.

Written and hosted by Lynne Marie Rosenberg (High Maintenance), and directed by Jenn Haltman (Summertime).
