One evening in February, on the balcony of the University of Hawai‘i’s (UH’s) magnificent Kennedy Theatre, I found myself talking to Reiko Brandon, widow of ATJ’s founding editor Jim Brandon. I was there to watch the ninth jingju (Beijing opera) production directed by Elizabeth Wichmann-Walczak, Jim’s co-editor. As I was telling Reiko of ATJ’s change of editor, I was reminded of the outsize contribution UH’s theatre program has made to Asian theatre studies, particularly to ATJ over the past three and half decades. Indeed, all my predecessors came from the program as professors or students, starting from Jim and Elizabeth (1984–1991), through Sam Leiter (1992–2004), to Kathy Foley (2005–2018). Together, they have made ATJ the go-to journal for Asian theatre studies in the world. This is a remarkable achievement and I will try my best to follow their steps. I especially want to thank Kathy for her invaluable advice, both during the transition and since my first publication in ATJ as an “emerging scholar.” I’m also grateful for the strong editorial support structure I continue to rely on, with associate editors Carol Fisher Sorgenfrei and Claudia Orenstein and area editors (including several new members): Elizabeth Wichmann-Walczak, Xing Fan, Josh
