This season premiers Theater Mu’s experimental Pay As You Are pricing. Mu strives to voice the stories of the Asian American community, and in order to bring performances to those communities whose stories they tell, Mu is committed to make them as accessible as possible. Pay As You Are pricing asks those who routinely pay $35-$40 for theater tickets to choose to pay that; it is the actual fair market value of the ticket. If an audience member needs to pay less, they can choose to pay less - as little as $5 per ticket. The minimum for the season subscription that includes the four mainstage shows is $50, with fair market value for the package at $100.

Her works includeConfessions of a Lazy Hmong Woman and Ten Reasons Why I’d Be a Bad Porn Star.  She has received grants from the Bush Leadership Fellowship, the Minnesota State Arts Board, the National Performance Network, the Midwestern Voices and Visions Residency Award, the Playwrights' Center, and the Loft Literary Center.
