SOUL OF SHAOLIN BEGINS FINAL WEEK, CELEBRATES LUNAR NEW YEAR

SOUL OF SHAOLIN

BEGINS FINAL WEEK OF PERFORMANCES TONIGHTAS LIMITED ENGAGEMENT

 

CELEBRATES LUNAR NEW YEAR

 

“SOUL OF SHAOLIN IS THRILLING!”

— Cindy Adams, 1/26/2009

 

SOUL OF SHAOLIN, the Chinese martial arts spectacular, begins its final week of performances tonight at the Marquis Theatre (1535 Broadway). In addition, tonight marks the special Lunar New Year performance of SOUL OF SHAOLIN as the world rings in the Year of the Ox.

 

The production began performances on Tuesday, January 13 and opened Thursday, January 15. The show will end its strictly limited 24 performance engagement on Saturday, January 31.

 

Direct from appearances in Sydney, Macau, and at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, comes a theatrical event that is unparalleled on Broadway. SOUL OF SHAOLIN tells the story of a boy named Hui Guang who is separated from his mother by war. Hui Guang is found and taken in by the legendary monks of the Shaolin temple and raised among them. As he becomes a man, Hui Guang becomes an accomplished master of Shaolin Kung Fu and embarks on a spectacular journey of self-discovery.

 

SOUL OF SHAOLIN marks the first time a production from the People’s Republic of China has appeared on Broadway.

 

SOUL OF SHAOLIN features 30 Chinese nationals who are highly skilled in Shaolin Kung Fu, the breathtaking martial art that has been featured in such films as Fearless (starring international superstar Jet Li) and Shaolin Soccer, both of which were recent US box office successes.

 

Shaolin Kung Fu is the collection of martial arts that is associated with the monks of the Shaolin temple in China’s Henan province. This particular style is characterized by almost superhuman displays of strength and agility, but is tempered with the monks’ philosophical belief in training the mind, body, and Soul.

 

SOUL OF SHAOLIN marks the inaugural production of China on Broadway which is a historic partnership between Nederlander Worldwide Productions and Eastern Shanghai Cultural Film and Television Group. China on Broadway’s American and Chinese partners will work together to develop and produce theatrical projects for global audiences. China on Broadway will bring an annual theatrical event featuring leading Chinese artists to Broadway in celebration of the Lunar New Year.
