Broadway's Stephanie Hsu and Tony winner Lea Salonga will be honored as part of Gold House's annual A100 List this year. The organization recognizes 100 Asian Pacific leaders impacting American culture and society across several industries, and will honor them May 5-7, including with the Gold Gala May 6.
"Gold House's A100 List is a vital representation of the diverse opportunities and achievements of and for Asian Pacific leaders. Becoming begins with seeing—and it shows how we're just getting started. I'm so proud to be part of past classes and applaud this year's class," said Oscar winner Michelle Yeoh.
Salonga is being honored with the Gold Legend Honor while Hsu was named on the A100 list. Hsu was also named among the cast and creators of Joy Ride alongside Ashley Park. Also being honored this year are Sandra Oh with the SeeHer Award (artists who advocate for gender equality, portray characters with authenticity, defy stereotypes, and push boundaries), Here Lies Love producer Jose Antonio Vargas, and Playbill's own Editor-in-Chief Diep Tran.
Gold House also highlights achievements by Asian Pacific leaders in the past year, including historic award nominations and wins for Everything Everywhere All At Once.
“In the past year, from Everything Everywhere All At Once at the Oscars to IPOs on the NYSE and NASDAQ, we’ve moved from Asian Pacific community firsts to global industry firsts. This is no longer about just having a seat at the table or belonging—the A100 and the powerful Gold Gala are about building new houses by breaking established ceilings for all communities,” said Bing Chen and Jeremy Tran, CEO and COO of Gold House. “By distilling and punctuating the Asian Pacific community’s essential impact on culture, we reimagine what’s possible for our community and redefine how we’re seen in society.”
At the Gold Gala, awards will be presented to A1s, special honorees, and legends. The full list of A100s can be found here.
