Every other week, the editors of American Theatre curate a free-ranging discussion about the lively arts in our Offscript podcast.
But this week, in a very special edition, performers Pun Bandhu and Angel Desai from the Asian American Performers Action Coalition and playwright A. Rey Pamatmat join associate editor Diep Tran and editor-in-chief Rob Weinert-Kendt to clear the air about the recent Mikado-in-yellowface controversy, particularly as represented in controversial columns by Tran and Weinert-Kendt (the latter of which prompted an apology). In a respectful and free-ranging exchange, everyone gets a chance to explain themselves and reach a clearer understanding going forward—at least, that’s the idea.
