Illegal: A New Musical ended a fulfilling year of virtual presentations and new connections with a live appearance at Carnegie Hall! Here are some 2021 highlights:
- We were named a Semi-Finalist for the 2022 National Music Theater Conference at Eugene O’Neill Theater Center (in consideration for the Finalist round).
- We were invited to perform as the featured act for the Music for Change benefit concert at Carnegie Hall in October. Below: Skyler Chin and Nick Leung perform “The Legend of Slim Chin and Fat Pork” at Carnegie Hall.
- Our grassroots fundraising got off to a great start thanks to generous donations from our amazing supporters. (Donate here: Fractured Atlas or Go Fund Me.)
- We were honored to connect with so many incredible advocates, educators, and students, and introduce Illegal to hundreds of new fans on our virtual tour. In support of AAPI Heritage Month and #StopAsianHate, we discussed how sharing Asian American history, storytelling and arts activism can combat hate, inspire empathy and advocate for justice. Community organizations and schools from New York to California, included AIISF, AALDEF, AAARI-CUNY, CAPA, OCA, YARI, Apex for Youth, The Nueva School, and Great Neck South.
