A play at the Helen Hayes Theatre on Broadway may have a cast dominated by white men, but history has been made behind the scenes. With "Straight White Men," Young Jean Lee became the first Asian-American woman playwright to have a play open on Broadway.Breaking the glass ceiling for Asian-American woman playwrights was a special honor for Lee, but that distinction comes with some pressure.Lee said she was inspired by the idea of white men feeling marginalized because they were now being labeled.
