As the nation’s premier Asian American theatre organization, East West Players produces artistic work and educational programs that foster dialogue exploring Asian Pacific Islander (API) experiences. Founded in 1965, at a time when APIs faced limited or no opportunities to see their experiences reflected outside of stereotypical and demeaning caricatures in the American landscape, East West Players not only ensures that API stories are told, but works to increase access, inclusion, and representation in the economy. East West Players is housed in an historical building in Little Tokyo and operates a 240-seat theater year-round.
