Last night, over 1,800 people were present to watch our annual Vietnamese Culture Night at Royce Hall. That number alone is enough to humble us — our annual show has grown so much in the past 34 years, and to see the continued love and support from our friends, family, and members of the community is always astounding. We had folks coming from hundreds of miles away just to witness our performances, and for that, we thank you.
This year’s show dealt with the sensitive issues of mental health and domestic abuse. It seems that, with every passing year, we strive harder to push the boundaries of dialogue in the Vietnamese community, and this year was no different. We wanted to bring the topics to the forefront and break the taboos surrounding discussions of autism and abuse. Hopefully, through this experience, our cast and our audience were able to find relevancy in their own lives and reflect on the issues we raised.
We would like to thank every community organization that helped us put on our show at Royce Hall, as we have done for many years. We owe our thanks to every single member of the VCN cast for contributing their beautiful talents and hard work to our production.
We had fun, and we hope you did too.
