THE BAY AREA PREMIERE OF LLOYD SUH’S "THE CHINESE LADY"


MAGIC THEATRE ANNOUNCES:


SAN FRANCISCO, CA . ~ Magic Theatre (Loretta Greco, Artistic Director and Kevin Nelson, General Manager) is pleased to announce the com- plete cast and creative team for the Com- pany’s first production of the 2019-2020 season, the Bay Area Pre- miere of Lloyd Suh’s The Chi- nese Lady, di- rected by Mina Morita. “One of the joys of being a part of Magic is to ex- perience play- wrights over time, as their singular lens on the world sharpens,” said Artistic Director Loretta Greco. “There is perhaps no better example of this than the trajectory of Lloyd Suh's work as he has grown from an adventurous emerging play- wright (American Hwangap, Jesus in India) into the gravi- tas of mid-career. We are thrilled to welcome


Lloyd and his revelatory The Chinese Lady back home, to Magic, where this stirring play began.” “It's so mean- ingful to be able to bring this play to the Bay Area,” said playwright Lloyd Suh, “which was essential to the history it aims to excavate. It's even more meaningful to bring it to Magic, which has been a critical artistic community to me for more than a decade. I'm honored and thrilled!” “It is no small thing to consider whose gaze shapes history and therefore our current framing of the world,” said Director Mina Morita. “This conjuring


of Afong Moy, a person who really lived in our midst, is a graceful act of purpose -- a reshaping of our understand- ing.”


In-


spired by the true story of the first Chinese woman to arrive on Amer- i


c a n


soil, The Chinese Lady follows Afong Moy af- ter she is brought from China to America and put


on display for an eager public yearning to learn of the exotic East. Leavened with humor and insight, Suh explores the way we consider both our- selves and others. "Extraordinary…We look at Afong and see whole centu- ries of American History. She is no longer the Chinese lady. She is us." - New York Times (Nov, 2018) Previews begin on Wednes-


day, October 9, 2019 at Magic Theatre’s Fort Mason location (Fort Mason, 2 Marina Blvd., Building D, 3rd Floor, San Francisco, CA 94123), with a press opening on Wednesday, October 16 at 8:00 p.m. Tick- ets range from $15 - $75 and are on-sale now at MagicThe- atre.org.


The Chinese Lady runs ap- proximately 90 minutes with no intermission.More Info? Phone:
