More than just a pretty face, she beat the odds with Courage, Determination and whole lot of Spirit!
Mulan is the classic story of a Chinese peasant girl who disguises herself as a man so that she can take her ailing father’s place as a soldier in the emperor’s war against the Huns. After years of successfully concealing her true identity, Mulan’s secret is ultimately revealed and she is worshipped for her courage and loyalty. This legendary story's message of bravery, leadership and the importance of family remain relevant to audiences today.
In 2013, Mulan had 33 successful performances in Peter Jay Sharp Theater. We have redoubled our efforts and, after a year of preparation, Mulan will be brought back to life! For the second time in New York, the timeless Chinese folk tale of Mulan is coming to the stage courtesy of the Red Poppy Ladies’ Percussion - China’s first all-female percussion group. Red Poppy has participated 3 times in Olympic Performances. (Athens\Beijing\London). Red Poppy Ladies’ Percussion artfully combines traditional Kung Fu with amazing drumming techniques. Their synchronistic drumming style provides a rich and visual experience for this classic tale that has been brilliantly reinterpreted for the American audiences.
