VIDEO: Cast And Creative of THE CHINESE LADY Talk Bringing The Show To Barrington Stage

Barrington Stage Company (BSC), the award-winning theatre in the Berkshires (Pittsfield, MA) under the leadership of Artistic Director Julianne Boyd, is proud to present the world premiere of The Chinese Lady, presented in a co-production with the Ma-Yi Theater Company. The Chinese Lady is now on stage through August 11.

Check out the cast and creative talking about the show below!

Written by Lloyd Suh (Charles Francis Chan Jr.'s Exotic Oriental Murder Mystery), directed by Ralph Peña (Microcrisis, Ma-Yi Theater Company), the cast of The Chinese Lady will include Shannon Tyo (BSC's Broadway Bounty Hunter) as "Afong Moy" and Daniel K. Isaac ("Billions") as "Atung."

In 1834, Afong Moy is brought to the United States from Beijing and put on display for the American public as the "Chinese Lady." Over the next 45 years, she performs in a side show that both defines and challenges her own view of herself. Inspired by the true story of America's first female Chinese immigrant, playwright Lloyd Suh spins a tale of dark poetic whimsy in this piercing portrait of America as seen through the eyes of a young Chinese woman.

The Chinese Lady has scenic and costume design by Junghyun Georgia Lee, lighting design by Oliver Wason, sound design by Fabian Obispo. Casting by Pat McCorkle. Production Stage Manager: Geoff Boronda.

Performances: Tuesday through Saturday at 7:30pm; Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 3:00pm. Opening night July 25 at 7:30pm. St. Germain Stage at the Sydelle and Lee Blatt Performing Arts Center (36 Linden Street). Tickets: $15-$48. Barrington Stage Box Office: (413) 236-8888
