Pan Asian Rep’s NuWORKS 2017 presents Angel Lam’s Lost in Shanghai, a new play in process with music.
Pan Asian Repertory Theatre, in its 40th Milestone Season, continues its commitment to artists creating new works with 4 May Benefit Performances of Angel Lam’s Lost in Shanghai: In Process Play with Music, presented as part of NUWORKS 2017. Lost in Shanghai is an untold adventure story and romance, giving a glimpse into the lavish and mysterious world of 1940’s Shanghai, a time when the city was known as "The Paris of the East" and the "New York of the West;” of beautiful clothes and elevated emotions, like a floating world, everything was transient…a time now lost to history.
Based on family diaries, Angel Lam's Lost in Shanghai pushes the boundaries of theatre by integrating a unique sound world of classical, musical theatre, East Asian music esthetics and folk songs, transporting audiences to a different time and place. The cast of 6 portray diverse characters in an adventure and love story against the backdrop of war from a personal perspective that has universal but personal relevance.
