“The more of us there are that are visible, the more commonplace it will become to people, and after a while, people aren’t even going to think twice about it..I play Laura Osnes’s stepsister [in Cinderella], the daughter of Harriet Harris, and the sister of Marla Mindelle, and not one person, not one reviewer, not one human being has ever said to me, ‘How is that possible? You are Asian’, you know. It’s just accepted. And I sort of feel like if we can just get to that place with every show, we wouldn’t have a problem. But, you know, we have to just keep saying, ‘We’re here, we are here.’

- Ann Harada

James Oliver Huberty was responsible for what is known as ‘The McDonalds Massacre’ in San Yisidro California. On the 18th of July, 1984, Hubert calmly informed his wife that he was going out to hunt humans. His wife did not take this statement seriously, but a few minutes later Hubert drove to a nearby McDonalds where he shot and killed 21 people. Hubert himself was shot and killed during the massacre by a sharp shooter from the SWAT team.
