Past, Present & Future

Monday, October 5th 
NYU Skirball Center

To celebrate the 5th Anniversary of The National Asian Artists Project, Executive Artistic Director, Baayork Lee, and her very special team are "turning it up" with a special and splashy show called PAST, PRESENT & FUTURE. The evening will be a line-up of wall-to-wall musical numbers from Broadway shows and featuring highlights from past productions and current material, as well as what Baayork hopes to stage in the future, with her unique company. It is a fantastic opportunity to SHOW OFF the talents in NAAP, from soloists to dancers to choral. 

The TWIST of the night is that many numbers will be staged by Broadway pros, who are friends and supporters of NAAP, and the evening will be supervised by Directors Baayork Lee and Richard Jay-Alexander. There will also be a full orchestra conducted by Broadway's Kevin Stites. This is a night you won't want to miss and a once-in-lifetime opportunity to support this worthy company as they head into the future. Seeing these stars and members of NAAP side-by-side is sure to be a night to remember. For this special night, we are pulling out all the stops and doing it on NYU Skirball's professional stage with all the bells and whistles that spell BROADWAY!

Welcome to National Asian Artists Project

NAAP is a community of artists, educators, administrators, community leaders, and professionals. It is a not-for-profit organization that recognizes the need to build bridges between the work of artists of Asian descent, and the many communities that the work can serve, from underserved primary school students to seasoned arts patrons. 


Our Mission

National Asian Artists Project (NAAP) exists to be a leader in educating, cultivating, and stimulating audiences and artists—current and future—through showcasing exceptional work by vibrant artists of Asian descent. Art constantly evolves, and NAAP strives to command a place at the fore with a uniquely compelling American voice.

Our Goals

NAAP believes that artists of Asian descent have many vital roles to play in the fostering of American communities.

  • Through thoughtful educational programming, we seek to present the richness of theatre arts to underserved children, fostering creative self-discovery and expression.
  • Support the artistic growth of theatre artists of Asian descent through professional employment opportunities.
  • Build and cultivate new local and national audiences that encourage patronage and participation in the Carts, including predominantly Asian communities unaccustomed to playing a role in the local or national arts dialogue.
  • Capture and archive stories of prominent artists of Asian descent that they may be made available for future generations from which to learn and inspire.
