Not many Asian actors and actresses in the Entertainment Industry have been cast on Broadway Shows in the US. It is especially rare to find an Asian actor/actress taking the lead role.
According to AAPAC, Asian American Performers Action Coalition (see chart below)… in New York city, only 3% of Asian American actors were cast on Broadway productions during 2011/2012.
It took khun Boy more than 10 years of his professional life in the Entertainment Industry and work on Broadway to accomplish what he just did… a director of a musical on Broadway!
