Description

This musical theatre applies a double-structured storyline to interpret contemporary understandings of Tang Xianzu, known as Shakespeare of the East. In the Ming Dynasty part, several important episodes in Tang's life are selected to accompany his composition of the renowned Four Dreams in Linchuan. In the modern times, a young women named Xin'an, with the help of Daydream, tries to search for and understand 'where does love arise? It wells up from the deep', written by Tang in his masterpiece, The Peony Pavilion, and to learn about his life stories and persistence in love.

Theatre Weekly (4/5 stars) 92 days ago

Tang and Four Dreams paints an accurate and poised reflection of post-medieval China that relates flawlessly to our own era. It is as soft and sultry as a lullaby, yet as grand and imposing as the epic man who first gave them life.
