Christmas eve was spent at a Julia Hsiao’s house, a family friend. Six months ago in June at a similar gathering, Julia offered for me to come to Shantou University (STU) in China to produce a musical. This time, we had lots to laugh about reflecting upon the crazy production of Pippin.
Julia Hsiao dropped another idea this time around: TOUR STU’s Pippin to Guangzhou and Macau for recruitment efforts of the University. I couldn’t help but laugh a little. This idea seems twice as outrageous as the first go-around. I can think of a hundred reasons why that it is difficult to do this, only a few of which has to do with the fact that it is in China. That’s not to say I wouldn’t do it but any producer in their right mind would never attempt touring a show that has already been concluded.
The question is, am I still in my right mind?
