The world premiere Kennedy Center -commissioned musical The Dragon King’s Daughter
Chinese dragon mythology and martial arts combine onstage inspired by Marcus Yi’s story about an unlikely young duo on a daring adventure. With direction by Chongren Fan (Artistic Director of Yangtze Theatre) and choreography by Billy Bustamante (Associate Director for Here Lies Love opening on Broadway), the musical features lyrics and music by Yi.
The show follows 12-year-old Kenny Li, who is being bullied at school. When he finds a magical tablet, he is transported to the Jade Kingdom where he meets Xing, the Dragon King’s daughter. Together, they go on a quest to save the world, finding courage and friendship along the way.
