Pan Asian Repertory Theatre Inc

Resident company

Chinese Theatre Group
Founded in 1977 by Tisa Chang, the Pan Asian Repertory Theatre (PART) is one of the earliest theatres on the East Coast to explore the Asian-American experience. The company grew out of a group formed by Chang within La MaMa called the Chinese Theatre Group during the early 1970s and may have connections to La MaMa Chinatown (co-founded by La MaMa, Jing-Jyi Wu and Ching Yeh in 1970), though their artistic visions were significantly different. PART specializes in intercultural productions of new Asian-American new plays, English translations of Asian classics, and innovative adaptations of Western classics.
