02-23-12 – New York City, NY>Philadelphia, PA – The Yangtze Repertory Theatre of America presents a multilingual adaptation of “The Chalk Circle,” a 13th century Yuan dynasty Chinese classical Zaju verse play, primarily known in the West as the inspiration of Brecht’s “Caucasian Chalk Circle.” The play was based on a celebrated court case of Judge Bao, a magistrate still known throughout the Chinese speaking world of today for his wisdom and fair-mindedness.
A beautiful Begonia, is sold into a house of prostitution by her impoverished family, after her father’s death. There she is befriended by Official Ma, a wealthy and childless tax collector, who takes her into his house as his second wife. She bears him a son, Shou Lang, but earns the jealousy of his first wife, Mistress Ma.
Aiming to remove Begonia as a threat of inheriting the Ma Family’s fortune, Mistress Ma accuses Begonia of adultery and poisons Official Ma. She then blames Begonia for the crime and claims to a court that Shou Lang is her own child. As Begonia is about to be hanged, she is rescued by Judge Bao Zheng, who tactfully sees through the scam planned by Mistress Ma.

Christmas is Comin’ Uptown (Nov. 25-27, Nov. 30 – Dec. 18, 2010)
All those Dickens characters dancing, jiving and swinging to a Harlem beat? Right on! Scrooge is a Harlem slumlord about to foreclose an apartment house, a recreation center and a church when his late partner and the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future take him on their rounds. He comes upon his own grave after watching Tiny Tim’s burial procession and he’s reformed. Shedding his nightshirt, he orders Chinese food and Jewish deli (the only food available this Christmas morn) for the Cratchits. There’s one addition to the classic tale– a rousing gospel number in a Baptist church. Otherwise the only difference is that Scrooge, Marley, the Cratchits and all are Black.
