China welcomes ’42nd Street’

Tony Award-winning musical plays next month

BEIJING — Broadway comes to China next month when the Tony Award-winning hit musical “42nd Street” tours seven cities around the country, giving Chinese auds a chance to kick up their heels.

The show will be staged 70 times in the cities of Shanghai, Hangzhou, Nanjing, Ningbo, Hefei, Wuhan and the capital Beijing. It is due to start its Chinese run on Sept. 3.

After years with only patriotic stage shows to raise their spirits, Chinese auds have been able to see quite a few Broadway musicals in recent years, since “Les Miserables” and “Cats” in 2003, “The Sound of Music” in 2004, “Phantom of the Opera” a year later and “The Lion King” last year.

Part of the ticket revenues will be donated to the Soong Ching Ling Music Fund to support an exchange program between Chinese and American youngsters.

The show is produced by Nederlander, Troika Entertainment and Broadway Asia Entertainment, while the Chinese partners include Beijing Time New Century Entertainment and Shanghai Media Entertainment Group.
