The second time we met Julian at the stage door, we got to talk to Julian about being Filipino, Filipino food, and Miss Saigon―a show known to have many Filipinos in its cast.

We haven’t had the most exciting summer, as we didn’t go on vacation or anything extravagant like that. But we still had some good experiences that made the summer an eventful one—many of which happened to involve Broadway. Continue reading
