Chil has a long award-winning career with major theater companies across Boston, San Diego, Seattle, and L.A. and is currently the only Korean American artistic director of a major theater company in the United States.
Facing the COVID-19 pandemic’s turbulent effects on the performing arts industry, Chil shares how some performing arts centers are trying to find new ways to engage with their audience. As a leading voice in the performance and entertainment industry, he shares his valuable insight into Asian American representation and the importance of the performing arts to our community. Chil reminds us of the power to write our own stories and how they must be woven into the cultural fabric of America.
