Welcome to the Family, Kiet!
Meet Kiet Tai Cao, one of the newest members of the Interstate family. He's playing the well-intentioned but misguided immigrant father of our protagonist, in addition to an assortment of other characters. Kiet took a few minutes to share some tidbits with us.
NAME: Kiet Tai Cao
HOW DO YOU IDENTIFY?
I identify as a cisgender male.
WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
I was born and raised in Reno, NV. Well Sparks, NV to be specific.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN ACTING?
Acting for 10 years? Performing my whole life!
WHERE HAVE WE SEEN YOU BEFORE?
I was just in a new musical called “The New World” at Buck’s County Playhouse. I am now the Co-President of the National Asian Artists Project Broadway Community Chorus. Hahahaha! Mouthful.
WHY DID YOU SAY YES TO INTERSTATE?
When I read the script, I loved it. And written by two Asian artists? Yes, please!
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT INTERSTATE?
I am a new cast member, but my favorite part is that it’s a story that needs to be told. I look forward to exploring my roles as an ensemble member haha!
WHAT ELSE ARE YOU WORKING ON THAT'S EXCITING?
I am super excited about my poetry on Instagram @CloserToKindness. I hope to someday take it beyond poetry and expand it to a movement, an empire. I have lots of vision for it. Stay tuned :)
