About This Show

Tony Award-winner David Henry Hwang’s new adaptation of this Rodgers and Hammerstein jewel centers on Mei-Li who arrives in 1960 San Francisco Chinatown after fleeing communist China. The naïve young refugee is befriended by Wang, who is struggling to keep the Chinese theatrical tradition alive despite his son’s determination to turn the theatre into a rowdy nightclub. A unique blending of American razz-ma-tazz and stylized Chinese traditions, this beautiful theatrical tapestry is highlighted by its wonderful score, that is both lushly romantic and showbiz-brassy and includes “I Enjoy Being a Girl,” “A Hundred Million Miracles,” “Sunday” and “Chop Suey.”
