Lawrence Walker will present a developmental reading of Fusong, a new musical with book and lyrics by Christine Toy Johnson and music by Cecilia Lin. Based on the novel, The Lost Daughter of Happiness, by acclaimed Chinese novelist and screenwriter Geling Yan, Fusong is directed and conceived by Gabriel Barre.

Fusong tells the story of two young Chinese women in two different centuries linked by their complicated destiny to search for true freedom from within. As Fusong is kidnapped from her small village in China and thrown into the dark world of San Francisco’s Chinatown in 1866, and Nancy confronts the anti-Asian hate crimes of America’s 21st century COVID era, their histories intertwine with violence, enslavement, duty, and – against all odds – love, ultimately leading them on a journey to discover their shared legacy of survival.
