NEW YORK (AP) — Most theaters in America may be closed, but one musical isn’t letting the virus pandemic stop it from getting prepared to put on a show. “KPOP,” a musical exploring the world of Korean pop, is conducting a video-based global casting call in hopes of being ready whenever live performances resume. Producers are looking for Korean, Korean American and Asian American men and women in their 20s. They “must be excellent singers with a strong, pop belt” and “dance at an advanced level.” Familiarity with K-Pop is, of course, a plus. The show represents a rarity — a stage production with a nearly all-Asian cast.
