SURVIVING THE NIAN
A World Premiere musical
Music and Lyrics by Melissa Li
Book by Melissa Li and Abe Rybeck
"Winner of the 2007 Jonathan Larson Award for Musical Theater"
Fireworks explode when Kaylin's new-world life clashes with her family's plans. Where do her loyalties lie?
Kaylin returns to Hong Kong for the first time in five years, bringing her lover Asha -- and a completely new life plan -- to introduce to her family. But they have plans of their own for her. Kaboom! This groundbreaking show will remind you that families in even the most far-away lands are, well, familiar.
Playwright and composer Melissa Li started her drama career as a teenager in The Theater Offensive's True Colors: Out Youth Theater program. Surviving the Nian has been developed over the past four years through the company's Plays at Work program, and this spring's premiere represents the first fully-staged production of this exciting new musical.
Surviving the Nian runs April 14-May 5, with both matinee and evening performances available. Talkbacks after the April 15, 17, 21, 22 and 29 performances.
