China's first all-female percussion group, the Red Poppy Ladies, reinterpret the beloved folk tale Mulan. The story of a legendary heroine who disguised herself as a man to take her father's place in battle was also turned into a famed Disney animated film in 1998. But the Red Poppy Ladies' version mixes kung fu with traditional drumming as a backdrop to this inspiring tale of courage and family loyalty. Famed for their appearance at the Beijing Olympics, these professionally-trained musicians have performed throughout the world. Learn More

I'm a huge fan of playwright Adam Rapp. His plays in general, including this one, are not for everyone. When you enter the theater there is a sign warning about nudity and gunshots. And indeed there is a lot of full nudity, both female and male.
The play is very well-written, as all his work is. There's been a terrible war; men are being tortured - women being entered in a database. The action onstage focuses on a woman whose husband is missing - she is holed up trying to survive.
The acting is excellent and many of the themes are disturbing. It's a beautiful work about an ugly reality. Recommended for those who don't like things tied in neat packages - there's a lot of room for interpretation and debate.
