Deepak Kumar is a playwright and composer based out of the Bay Area, California. His work prominently features Asian-Americans grappling with the messiness of their identities as they relate to their unique American experiences. He is also a technologist, and is interested in building new experiences at the intersection of theatre and technology.
His first show (co-written with Jord Liu), “Baked! The Musical”, was produced in Chicago as part of the Chicago Musical Theatre Festival where it had a sold out run and won awards for best lyrics, best lead performer, best supporting performer, and best ensemble. He has worked with Underscore Theatre Company, the National Asian American Theatre Company (NAATCO) and Shotgun Players.
