Making Friends and Building an Audience

We had to take it easy today because the last two days were exhausting. Leilani and I slept in today and finally got ourselves out to the city in the late afternoon. One thing about trekking in New York...you've got to plan out your day because once you leave the house...it's difficult to return. You've got to plan out the walking and station to station stops. Public transport can be fun but also challenging. Today, to continue our exciting plan to build audience we went to connect with the staff for NAATF. Jeff, Kelly and John are all wonderfully working hard but we are finding press and marketing to be the biggest challenge. So, we've harnessed any contacts in New York that we know and are telling them about the festival and our show Refugee Nation. It was a great visit to the office because all the other theater offices are there on the 2nd floor of one building...Ma-Yi Theater, NAATCO and Pan-Asian Rep, not to mention many other theater organizations. The visit made the reality of this festival current! There was a feeling of "We are here! This festival is really happening! How exciting!"

Our next leg of the day we went to celebrate the birthday of Kristina Wong. She gathered some people together and we had a wonderful time at Lan Cafe in the Lower East Side. It was an all vegetarian Vietnamese restaurant which was pretty good. Not all the people attending...more new friends of Kristina and now us, are vegetarian but we all were there to enjoy the company and of course realize KWong's birthday in New York!! All of them now know about the festival and will come out to see Wong Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest AND Refugee Nation! Yahhh....
