On Saturday, August 17th, East West Players will celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Tim Dang as Producing Artistic Director. This signature “one night only” event takes place at East West Players, featuring some of the best talent to grace the EWP stage, along with dinner al fresco in the Aratani Courtyard, just outside the theater. Proceeds of One Night Only benefit the artistic/educational programs of East West Players and the organization’s endowment.

In EWP’s 48 years, Dang is the third Artistic Director of the organization, succeeding Nobu McCarthy and taking the helm in 1993. Among the key milestones in his leadership, the most pivotal was growing EWP from a 99-seat theater on Santa Monica Blvd. in the Silverlake neighborhood of Los Angeles, to a 240-seat state-of-the-art mid-size theater in its current location at the Union Center for the Arts in Little Tokyo.

Are you an artist who has been involved with East West Players? Have you participated in EWP’s mainstage productions, professional enrichment and youth arts education programs during Tim’s tenure? As part of the EWP artistic family, we want you to share the stage with Tim in an extra special way with the EWP Artistic Family Mosaic.
