Beijing Playhouse, China's English Broadway theatre, specializes in traditional Broadway favorites like Guys and Dolls, The Odd Couple, and A Christmas Carol. Beijing Playhouse shows have subtitles, painstakingly created, to preserve the artistic beauty of the show and at the same time to make the shows accessible to a non-English speaking Chinese audience-to introduce a Chinese audience to English theatre.
