Title: Madame White Snake
Playwright & Director: Jackie Huang

Synopsis:
Adapted from the classic Chinese story of “Legend of the White Snake” 《白蛇傳》from the Ming Dynasty, this new two-act musical is created by Jackie Huang set in the Southern Song Dynasty of China. The story tells of a young scholar Xu Xian (許仙), who falls in love with a beautiful woman Bai Suzhen (白素貞), unaware that she is a white snake who has taken on human form. Although the two are genuinely in love with one another, such a relationship is forbidden by the laws of Heaven, so a monk Fa Hai (法海) intervenes in order to save the scholar’s soul and destroy the demon. Another important character is a green snake Xiao Qing (小青), who has also been turned into a woman and serves as the white snake-woman’s maid and confidante.

Our Trip to “War Horse”

A group of 25 members who are avid theatergoers went to see the TONY award winning play, WAR HORSE on June 25th, 2011 at Lincoln Center’s Vivian Beaumont Theater. This was such an exciting outing and to experience a new venue of theater production. The show provided several opportunities to experience new theater spacing, different interpretations and how creative other theater companies are. Have you seen the show? Thoughts? Opinions? Was it artistry or puppetry? We would like your feedback.
