A Three Act Musical

I Ching


I, CHING recasts the birth of modern-day China in a new light, with a page in history envisioned this time as a song and dance comedy featuring sixteen original numbers and an English speaking Hong Kong cast.

This is the story of Jiang Ching, the woman who would leap from the stage of an actress to land onto the backwaters revolution outpost then propelled to become Chairman Mao’s wife. See her go from glamour to outcast to power with the help from her scheming Gand of Four.

Conceived as a musical supported by a humorous and entertaining show, this is one staging of China ‘s recent past that is not quite like anything else you have ever seen.
