Tipping Point Theatre (TPT) continues its 16th theatrical season on February 7, 2024, with the Michigan premiere of The Chinese Lady by Lloyd Suh and directed by Metro Detroiter Jasmine Rivera.


Afong Moy is fourteen years old when she’s brought to the United States from Guangzhou Province in 1834. Allegedly the first Chinese woman to set foot on U.S. soil, she has been put on display for the American public as “The Chinese Lady.” For the next half-century, she performs for curious white people, showing them how she eats, what she wears, and the highlight of the event: how she walks with bound feet. As the decades wear on, her celebrated sideshow comes to define and challenge her very sense of identity. Inspired by the true story of Afong Moy’s life, we see a dark, poetic yet whimsical portrait of America through the eyes of a young Chinese woman.  Compelling, profound, and sharply funny, it poses a question: when we look, do we really see?

 

TPT will host a very special opening night pre-glow reception on Saturday, February 10th beginning at 5 p.m. in the lobby preceding the 6 p.m. performance. Hors d’oeuvres and wine will be provided free of charge to all patrons with tickets to the February 10th performance.

The Tipping Point is that one dramatic moment in an epidemic when everything can change all at once…and we’ve reached it in a BIG way! From operating as a “vagabond” theatre company under the umbrella of the Parks and Recreation department, performing in any empty space we could get our hands on and paying actors with smiles and applause – we opened in 2007 with big changes – tipping point changes! Incorporated as a professional, non-profit 501(c)3 organization in the state of Michigan, Tipping Point Theatre opened its doors as a professional Equity theatre company in our permanent facility in downtown Northville. TPT is currently under the direction of James R. Kuhl and led by Board President Nannette Ret. Join us in fulfilling our mission by continued participation as an audience member, actor, designer, donor and advocate for theatre in Michigan. Looking forward to seeing you “at the Point!”
