We have a date for the premiere of our YouTube adaptation of our fellow Offender and Tony Award-winning writer David Henry Hwang’s play Yellow Face. It will debut in two parts on the YOMYOMF Network: Act One on June 8 and Act Two on June 9.
But if you’re in Los Angeles or New York, you’ll have two chances beforehand to get a sneak peek at Yellow Face—the first-ever play to YouTube adaptation of a major theatrical work. This Saturday, April 27, Hwang, YOMYOMF Network Creative Director Philip W. Chung and YouTube exec Christine H. Kim will speak at En Route: the 7th Annual New York City Asian American Student Conference (NYCAASC). Then, on May 5, the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival (LAAPFF) will host a work-in-progress screening of Yellow Face followed by a Q&A with some of the cast/crew (see below on how you can win ticks to the screening).
The NYCAASC panel will be on 5PM EST on April 27 and will include the first public look at a clip from the film. The event is FREE and you can click here to register and get more info.
The LAAPFF screening will be at 5PM PST on May 5 at the Directors Guild of America in West Hollywood—for more info and ticks, click here.
