Flower Drum Song

PLOT SYNOPSIS

Revived and rewritten for Broadway in 2002, the David Hwang version of Flower Drum Song maintains its beloved songs, but updates the storyline with delightful results. In San Francisco's Chinatown, Chinese immigrants struggle to find their identity in their new country. Some are more successful than others. One recent arrival is Mei-Li who escaped Communist China for a new life in America. She arrives, hoping to sing at the Golden Pearl, a theatre specializing in Chinese opera. The owner's son, Ta, however has a more Americanized theatre in mind. Mei-Li, disappointed and disenchanted, makes plans to move to Hong Kong but a last minute plea by Ta could change her mind.
