Epoch Times: Chinese Andrew Sisters were the first Asian Americans on Broadway

Kim Loo SistersThe Kim Loo Sisters are Asian American pioneers, but unfortunately few have heard of them, reports the Epoch Times.

Alice, Maggie, Jenée, and Bubbles played with such legends as Frank Sinatra and Jackie Gleason and became known as the Chinese Andrew Sisters.

They also were the first Asian American act on Broadway.

Jenee’s daughter Leslie, is producing a documentary on the Sisters, Portrait in Four-Part Harmony.

“The Kim Loo Sisters should be a household name, especially for Asian-Americans who think they can’t go on [Broadway] because they don’t have role models,” said Leslie, an award-winning writer. “They were American icons of the ’40s, they were the girls next door,” Leslie said. “What white American women portrayed, the Kim Loo sisters could also portray.”

You can read about how the Sisters got their start and a bit more about their family in the Epoch Times.
