I've been asked to lead an artists' discussion with playwrights Julia Cho (Durango) and Elizabeth Wong (Letters to a Student Revolutionary). I've made my deep admiration for their work known on this blog (read "Fine, Julia Cho, You Deserve It All" and "You Say You Want a Revolution"), so I instantly agreed. Plus, there's a going to be a Chinese buffet at the event. A Chinese buffet! I would've been nuts to say no!
You're probably thinking, "Wait. Prince has been asked to moderate a panel discussion? How will Julia and Elizabeth get a word in edgewise? Won't he keep trying to steer the conversation back to himself and Pork Chop?"
The answer, of course, is yes. That's why I've been spending all week studying Charlie Rose, though I don't think I can quite duplicate that vacant look in his eyes.
No, but seriously, folks, you know I'm an excellent interviewer (check out Bamboo Nation on iTunes), so this is going to be an excellent evening. And if not, there's always the Chinese buffet.
