City Lights Theatre Company, CA - I've long desired to help share this story and I'm grateful to finally get a chance, and with an unbelievable team! "It’s 1975, Saigon has fallen, and Quang and Tong should be grateful they’ve made it to the United States. But he lost his wife and she lost her brother. And Arkansas is way too weird. In this irreverent comedy told in Qui Nguyen’s audacious style, these two Vietnamese refugees try to find their way home, wherever that is. In the process, they just might find each other. Modern hip-hop meets 1970s America in an exciting mashup of history and cultures."

Show: TWELFTH NIGHT the musical

Dec 1st-Jan 15th, 2022

SF PLAYHOUSE, CA - Catch me in a musical adaption of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night as Fabian! I join this incredible ensemble of actors for a night of fun, music, and shenanigans! "Twelfth Night is a rousing contemporary musical adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic romantic comedy about mistaken identity and self-discovery. On the twelfth day of Christmas, shipwrecked Viola washes up on the shores of Illyria, disguises herself as a man, is sent to court a countess and falls hard for a Duke. As she navigates the gender confusion in all her roles, she finds her true self and true love in the process. Featuring an original jazz-funk score by Shaina Taub, Twelfth Night is a soulful shake-up of a Shakespearean classic, perfect for the 12th night of Christmas or any day of the year."

Multiverse of Gladness

TASI ALABASTRO is an Asian Pacific Islander and award-winning artist residing in California. Of the many things he believes in, he believes boredom is an essential part of the creative process and is always looking to explore that topic. He holds a special place in his heart for helping people bridge the gap between their ideas and execution; better 'done' than 'perfect' fuels his waking hours. He’s comfortable on-stage, on-camera, behind the camera, and wherever he might fit. That being said, he's also gained some weight during the Pandemic and tangentially learned which pants are better for work. Answer: None.

Recipient of the Silicon Valley Emerging Artist Laureate (2018) and the Leigh Weimer’s Emerging Artist Award (2019), Tasi has also been featured in the Silicon Valley Arts & Culture Magazine, CONTENT, and is a proud alumnus of the Multicultural Arts Leadership Institute (MALI). His work with Red Ladder Theatre Company involves facilitating workshops with marginalized communities; this includes incarcerated men and women in California Correction Facilities, Children on the spectrum, and homeless and runaway youth, all of which have been featured on KQED and Theatre Bay Area Magazine.

Tasi has also enjoyed the heck out of making content on Youtube, Twitch, and various social media platforms. His content and community can be described as goofy warm, casual, and oft-surprisingly insightful.

Three things I want to finish before 2013

But probably won’t. The end of the year holiday rush is upon us. Droves of people flocking to the malls and outlets to get their last minute shopping in; ribbons, wrappers, and scotch tape are being pieced together with a flurry not unlike that of an expert swordsman in a battlefield. Or some other flurriest thing… Here are three things I want to finish doing before 2013…but probably won’t. Finish writing Amazon reviews I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to place more than

Something is missing

With my 29th birthday a week behind me, I’ve had a moment to soak in all of the things I’ve been grateful for- loyal friends, successful projects, a roof over my head, parents who still nag me about future plans (yes, I’m even grateful for that), and certainly not lacking in importance, a growing friendship with a person whose companionship has meant a great deal to me. All things I’m grateful for… But something was missing. Something so basic and intrinsic to my growth as an

Ebb and Floetry, personal ramblings.

Emotions ebb and flow like day and night, lay waste to those vessels lacking in foresight. Squeal in delight, fly high strung like kite but explode like dynamite. In your face but out of place, a resident blame laced in residual pain. A crush, a breathing thing on its own, pay it back twice-fold like a bank loan. A monopoly of bliss, do not pass go. I forgot to remember that these things surprise, like seeing the flash of light seconds before your demise. But I’ll stray from

Feeling the Floetry

I don’t know if it was the lengthy train ride or experiencing a concert in the rain but I’ve found myself insisting on writing–and not just any kind of writing, but writing floetry.  And when I say floetry, I mean, writing the first thing that comes to my head that I’ve funneled from a particular emotion or place inside that yearns to come out.  Floetry is what I’d like to call it because I feel what I write isn’t as beautiful as the poetry I’ve read.  This is more or less th
