About the event

What Do I Do with All This Heritage? dives into our multicultural Jewish future with witty, insightful, and heartbreaking true stories in the first-ever theatre show about the lives of Asian American Jews. Featuring their own words performed by professional actors, you’ll be entranced by the story of a Vietnamese teenager struggling to reconcile her Orthodox Jewish tradition with her secret love of dancing to K-Pop. An adoptee from Korea, raised by an American Jewish family, returns to discover his birth-family in a surprising and unforgettable tale. A Chinese American Jew by Choice lays bare her anguish that at this stage in her life, she’ll never get to raise a Jewish child. Plus many more fascinating and joyful stories! Broadway World raves this show “speak[s] to everyone who’s ever struggled to balance different sides of their identity.

The show represents a partnership between The Braid, a story company that for sixteen years has given stage to true stories from every corner of the Jewish experience, and The LUNAR Collective, founded in 2020 to become the only national organization by and for Asian American Jews.

As writer Matheus Ting expresses, “This show has allowed me to celebrate my Judaism and share my Jewish joy with our community and beyond."
