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

An uneven show to be sure. The two main leads were very good. Mcrae was sometimes brilliantly passionate, and sometimes seemed puzzled/curious as to how her part really fit. (Or was she slightly uncomfortable at times regarding the role she ended up with?) The show was best when either absurdist elements or poignant moments were played up. Chatted with a few people afterwards; their reaction seemed similar to my own. Beyond that... 122 is a great little theatre. Friendly staff. And near some fun/eclectic places to eat/drink.
