NAATCO was founded in 1989 by Mia Katigbak and Richard Eng to assert the presence and significance of Asian American theatre in the United States, demonstrating its vital contributions to the fabric of American culture. NAATCO puts into service its total commitment to Asian American theatre practitioners to more accurately represent onstage the multi- and inter-cultural dynamics of our society. By doing so, they demonstrate a rich tapestry of cultural difference bound by the American experience. The enrichment accrues to each different culture as well as to America as a whole. NAATCO was nominated for a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Revival of a Play, as well as Outstanding Costume Design for a Play for their acclaimed production of Henry VI: Shakespeare's Trilogy in Two Parts in 2018. Their 2015 production of Awake and Sing! at The Public was nominated for a Drama League Award for Outstanding Revival of a Broadway or Off-Broadway Play. NAATCO was the recipient of the Obies’ Ross Wetzsteon Award and the Rosetta LeNoire Award from Actors' Equity Association in recognition of its contribution toward increasing diversity in American theatre.
