5th Annual Lilah Kan "Red Socks Award"
presented to Orville Mendoza
 

 

At the Julia Miles Theater, following the matinee performance of IMELDA.


 The Annual Lilah Kan “Red Socks” Award has been presented for the past four years to an appreciative and deserving theater artist. This list includes: Rosanne Ma '05, Lloyd Suh '06, Nicky Paraiso '07 and Ernest Abuba '08. Along with a check for $1,000, each recipient has received an elegant plaque designed by the artist Carol Sun.

The goal of this award is to celebrate and continue the spirit in which Lilah shared her home, love and life with artists from all walks of life, but specifically honors an Asian American artist working in the New York City theatrical community. The “Red Socks” Award reflects the personal journey of Lilah Kan - who amidst pursuing her own career in theater always found time to open her home for scores of artists (David Henry Hwang, John Lone, Maxine Hong Kingston, Mako, Frank Chin, Victor Wong, Phillip Kan Gotanda and Kim Miyori to name a few) who were making their way in the NY theater world. Lilah’s trademark gift of presenting a pair of Red Socks to an artist on opening night is well known and remembered by many.
