Beijing Spring

Choreography by Marcus Choi

May 15 – June 15, 2014

A sung-through musical commemorating the events of the Tiananmen Square Uprising in Beijing in 1989. For weeks, the world’s eyes were on China as the youth fought for democracy against the hardliners of the Chinese Communist Party. This year will mark the 25th anniversary of the Uprising. BEIJING SPRING is a compelling reminder that the battle for freedom and human rights has yet to be won for many.

This production is presented with generous support from the S. Mark Taper Foundation Endowment for East West Players in community partnership with the Chinese American Museum.

Running time: 90 minutes with no intermission.
