BD Wong will be in conversation about his career.
Award-winning actor BD Wong is one of America’s most versatile performers. BD has been on screens big and small for the last 20 years, appearing in such hits as Law & Order: SVU, Oz, Gotham, Jurassic Park, and Jurassic World. He received an Emmy nomination for his role as whiterose and Minister Zhang in USA's Mr. Robot.
His Broadway debut in M. Butterfly earned him a Tony Award, Outer Critic’s Circle Award, Theatre World Award, Clarence Derwent Award, and Drama Desk Award, making him the only actor to ever win all five major New York theater awards for a single role.
Winner of the GLAAD Davidson/Valenti award, BD is an advocate for The Trevor Project's “It Gets Better” campaign and was honored for his support of the LGBT community at the annual Marriage Equality Gala. BD is on the Board of Directors of Rosie’s Kids, an organization that provides free performing arts classes to public school students.
BD has headlined productions of the ambitious one-man musical Herringbone – in which he plays nearly a dozen characters — at the Williamstown Theatre Festival, McCarter Theatre, and La Jolla Playhouse. He co-authored and directed the musical adaptation of Mr. Holland’s Opus at the Ogunquit Playhouse in 2016. Wong produced and directed The Yellow Wood for NYMF and Cindy Cheung’s Speak Up For Connie for the All For One festival. He is currently developing the new musical, Heading East.
ASL interpretation will be available for attendees.
