I will be reading for the role of Marlene Dietrich, as well as other various characters, in a staged reading of Peilin Kuo’s feature film screenplay A Thousand Deaths – The Story of Anna May Wong, presented by the New York Chinese Cultural Center May 9th at 7pm.
RSVP at email@example.com
Here’s about the film:
A Thousand Deaths the story of Anna May Wong, the first Chinese American Star in Hollywood’s Golden Era. Before Lucy Liu, even before Nancy Kwan, there was Anna May Wong (1905-1961), a Chinese-American actress who rose from a Laundromat in LA’s Chinatown to become the first Chinese-American international film star in the 1920s and ’30s. Anna May Wong, not only did she break through the barrier of sex, she also jumped through the obstacles of being a minority, weaving her way to be the first Asian American female to play parts in major Hollywood Studio films. It is a story worth telling as it not just an inspirational story but also a reminder that anything is possible, when you have a dream.
