Romantic Misadventures of Ah QA Musical Tragicomedy of Chinas Best-Known UnderdogCreated by: William Huizhu SunComposition/Arrangement: Xu XiaoStage/Lighting Design: Yi TianfuDirection: Zhang YinglunPerforming from 11/20/19 to 11/24/19At Theatre Row A Chinese language musical featuring the best known symbolic character of self-deception in modern Chinese literature -- Ah Q -- is opening on off-Broadway at Theatre Row (410 West 42nd Street) on November 20, 2019.Created by William Huizhu Sun, Romantic Misadventures of Ah Q is inspired by the episodic novella The True Story of Ah Q, a masterpiece written by Lu Xun (1881-1936), Chinas foremost modern writer. Ah Q is a man from the rural peasant class with little education. He is a poor vagrant who suffers perpetual poverty and humiliation but carries on with his daily battle of life while persuades himself mentally that he is spiritually "superior" to his oppressors. Many have identified the similarity between Ah Q and Don Quixote.Set in rural China around the 1911 revolution, the musicals original composition fuses with rhythmic clowning techniques of Chinese Gaojia Opera. Its simplicity and directness in style and poignancy in theme makes it easy to appreciate, to laugh, and contemplate.We are thrilled about this opportunity, said Wiliam Sun, creator of the musical. Ah Q, along with his fellow characters that many readers worldwide are familiar with -- Maid Wu, Lord Zhao and the revolutionaries are ready for a battle, full of laughter and tears, on the stage of New York City.TICKETSTickets are available at https://www.telecharge.com/Off-Broadway/Romantic-Misadventures-of-Ah-Q/Overview*Romantic Misadventures of Ah Q is performed in Chinese with English subtitles.SHOWTIMESWednesday, 11/20/19, 7:30 p.m., Theatre RowThursday, 11/21/19, 7:30 p.m., Theatre RowFriday, 11/22/19, 7:30 p.m., Theatre RowSaturday, 11/23/19, 7:30 p.m., Theatre RowSunday, 11/24/19, 3:00 p.m. / 7:30 p.m., Theatre Row
