About The Chinese Lady:

The Chinese Lady is inspired by the true story of America’s first female Chinese immigrant. It is a tale of dark poetic whimsy, a piercing portrait of America as seen through the eyes of a young Chinese woman; Afong Moy reflects on life in 1834 and beyond, as she is brought to the United States from China and put on display for the American public as “The Chinese Lady.”

Our The Chinese Lady Review

A young girl with a vibrant smile, a unique costume, very small feet, a uniquely oriental room, in a shipping box. This is the first image your mind registers when you see the Ma-Yi Theater Company production of The Chinese Lady by Lloyd Suh at Theatre Row.
