Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A funny and clever radical revision of the 1958 Broadway hit."—Time magazine

"An artistic success, revealing a revitalized score and a dramatic complexion that’s far richer than the original."—Variety

"One of the Year’s 10 Best."—Los Angeles Times

One of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s most compelling love stories is re-made enchantingly in a new adaptation by the renowned Asian-American playwright, David Henry Hwang. This new version was a runaway hit last year in Los Angeles and now is playing on Broadway. Set in San Francisco’s Chinatown in the late fifties, this is a funny and moving story which explores what it means to be an American and touches the history of every person whose forebearers once arrived as a stranger to these shores. The book also includes an essay by cultural critic Karen Wada on the history of Flower Drum Song and its relationship to the Asian-American community.

David Henry Hwang was awarded the 1988 Tony, Drama Desk, Outer Critics and John Gassner Awards for his Broadway debut, M. Butterfly, which was also a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. His most recent play Golden Child received a Tony nomination and a 1997 OBIE Award.

Synopsis:

Tony Award winner David Henry Hwang revitalizes the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical.
