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

Quotes & Highlights
“Firecrackers of revelation explode every few minutes in Becky Shaw, which is almost as quotably funny as Broadway’s scabrous August: Osage County — and that’s saying plenty.” —New York Times
In Gina Gionfriddo’s (After Ashley) wicked new comedy Becky Shaw, a newlywed couple fixes up two romantically challenged friends: wife’s best friend, meet husband’s sexy and strange new co-worker. When an evening calculated to bring happiness takes a dark turn, crisis and comedy ensue in this wickedly funny new play that asks what we owe the people we love and the strangers who land on our doorstep.
p. Directed by Peter DuBois. Starring David Wilson Barnes, Emily Bergl, Kelly Bishop, Annie Parisse, Thomas Sadoski.
