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

Engrossing performance and acting. One confused sexual compulsive writer, one married man with difficulty coming out, the woman he married in distress. There was some back and forth in terms of time of action which may have been confusing, but didn't really seem to matter much.
Oliver, Philip, and Sylvia are caught in a kind of erotic time warp. Their complex love triangle, replete with conflicting loyalties and passions, jumps from 1958 to the present and back in a maelstrom of fantasy, repression and rebellion in this innovative new drama. After taking London by storm last season in an Olivier Award-winning production at the Royal Court, The Pride now makes its American premiere at MCC Theater.
Tony Award-winning director Joe Mantello (Glengarry Glen Ross, Take Me Out_) directs this alternately tough and touching look at love and betrayal by Alexi Kaye Campbell (Apologia_). Four of Britain’s most acclaimed young actors, Hugh Dancy (Adam, Journey’s End_), Adam James (Last Chance Harvey_), Andrea Riseborough (Happy-Go-Lucky) and Ben Whishaw (Bright Star, Brideshead Revisited) will star.
