TaiwaneseAmerican.org is proud to be a CO-SPONSOR of a special TALK-BACK EVENT on August 14th along with NYU TSA & OCA-NY. This opportunity to meet & chat with Michelle Krusiec will be held from 4-5pm at Fringe Central (FringeNYC’s main offices centrally located in the West Village).


Sex, adultery, biting and noodles come together in this vibrant tale of a displaced Taiwanese mother, the daughter who loves her and the husband who must prove his fidelity. This darkly comedic solo show about family caught the eye of Variety Magazine and the Hollywood Reporter in its 2002 premiere at the HBO Aspen/U.S. Comedy Arts festival, earning Krusiec a slot on the Hollywood Reporter’s coveted list of top ten rising performers in Hollywood.

M.I.T. originated as an autobiographical thesis deconstructing the first generation Asian American dynamic between Michelle and her mother. Throughout the past several years, Made in Taiwan, has evolved into a tour-de-force one man show. Most recently, it premiered Off-Broadway at the first annual National Asian American Theater festival in New York City.

This show, workshopped occasionally, consistently plays to a packed house and through word of mouth publicity. Continue to check back for the next incarnation of Made in Taiwan.

“One of the most memorable pieces on display…a humorous, at times, jarring, exploration.”
L.A. Weekly

“Extremely moving…emotionally powerful.”
Julie Harris

“Made in Taiwan” is a one-woman tour-de-force on a daughter’s relationship with her mother. Michelle Krusiec wrote the play and gives a polished, incredible performance that I promise will leave you stunned.”
Ti-Hua Chang (Asian American Journalists Association)
