WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Tony Award-winner David Henry Hwang's new adaptation of this Rodgers and Hammerstein jewel. Mei-Li flees Mao's communist China after the murder of her father and finds herself in San Francisco's Chinatown in the mid twentieth century. This naïve young refugee is befriended by Wang, who is struggling to keep the Chinese opera tradition alive despite his son's determination to turn the old opera house into a swingin' Western-style nightclub. A unique blending of American razz-ma-tazz and stylized Chinese opera traditions creates a beautifully theatrical tapestry.
