Synopsis

Flower Drum Song

Flower Drum Song $12.99

David Henry Hwang - based on Oscar Hammerstein & Joseph Fields & C Y Lee & Richard Rodgers

Published by Theatre Communications

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 "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
