Our Leadership Transition
After nine years of leadership, Lily Tung Crystal will be stepping down as Artistic Director of Ferocious Lotus to take a new position as the Artistic Director of Theatre Mu in Minneapolis/St. Paul. We will be appointing a new leader later this summer, and Lily will continue to support Ferocious Lotus as the company’s Founder and Artistic Director Emeritus.
Lily has championed plays that break stereotypes and give voice to artists with diverse and international perspectives. Under her guidance, Ferocious Lotus has taken risks to affect change by creating socially relevant work that is quintessentially Asian American yet also universal, redefining a fresh, new paradigm in American theatre. She lived her passion at Ferocious Lotus, and we will continue that mission and support, train, and mentor theatre artists in our community.
We are grateful for her work at Ferocious Lotus, including bringing the premiere of Leah Nanako Winkler’s Two Mile Hollow to San Francisco in 2018, for which she was named a Theatre Bay Area Award finalist for Outstanding Direction.
Please join us in celebrating and congratulating Lily for her extraordinary work and wishing her much continued success.
