Azure River LLC Presents: Madam Mao
A Play by Janet Lo, Samantha Wan, Severn Thompson and Paul Thompson
September 20 – 22, 2018
The Toronto smash hit comes to Boise for only 5 special performances. Featuring the originating musician and star studded cast of actors and dancers from the original sold out production.
Known in the West as Madam Mao, Jiang Qing, the widow of Chairman Mao, was once the most powerful and feared woman in the world. Now a political prisoner, she relives her life, replete with idealism and contradictions. Incorporating revolutionary choreography, and underscored by a live musician, Madam Mao exposes the life of a woman who the Chinese are eager to forget and who North Americans never really knew.
“Excellent performance…three versatile and expressive actors, fascinating story”— Margaret Atwood, Author “The Handmaid’s Tale”
“Exciting dance pieces, skilled choreography, haunting score…rich with purpose and resonance that has the power to leave an audience stunned silent” —Mooney on Theatre (Toronto).
