Welcome to Shangri-la!
Performance Workshop's First Musical
Welcome to Shangri-La is about a man, Wang I-Fan, who has lost his heart and soul because of his successes and excesses. One day Wang I-Fan finds his career and fortunes falling apart and is completely alone. Even his wife, Ji-ling, is increasingly alienated from him. In an attempt to escape from his troubles, he goes on the run where he meets a young spirit who takes him on a journey to a magical far away land called “Shangri-La.” “What is eternal?” Wang asks. “Memory” the young spirit replies.
