Of the six Rodgers & Hammerstein musicals which were hits in their time, three were set in Asia or featured Asian storylines. Why were these iconic artists attracted to this subject? How did they humanize or stereotype the characters they portrayed? East West Players and Reprise Theatre Company proudly come together to co-present a symposium exploring the successes and controversies surrounding THE KING & I, FLOWER DRUM SONG and SOUTH PACIFIC. This entertaining and provocative evening will be moderated by Tony-winning playwright David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly, Yellow Face) and feature musical performances.
