I will remember Ernest Abuba for making his Broadway debut in multiple roles (Adams, Samurai, Noble) in ''Pacific Overtures'' (1976). And when the Off-Broadway revival rolled around in 1984, Abuba moved up to playing the Reciter. This multitalented Filipino-American won an Obie for playing Kenji Kadota in ''Yellow Fever,'' Rick Shiomi's delightful detective spoof. As a playwright, he adapted Louis Chu's historic novel ''Eat a Bowl of Tea'' for the stage. And most notably, Abuba and his former wife, Tisa Chang, founded New York's Pan Asian Rep to feature and foster Asian-American artists.
