Upcoming Events

Madam Mao at Boise Contemporary Theater

Drama, Dance Play
A One Act Play by Janet Lo, Samantha Wan, Severn Thompson and Paul Thompson The Toronto Smash Hit comes to Boise for only 5 performances. Featuring the star studded cast of actors, dancers and musician from the original sold out production, you won’t want to miss the American Premiere of what critics call “A MUST SEE”. In a Bejing jail cell, a young official is drawn into the telling of Jiang Qing's story. Known in the West as Madam Mao, the widow of Chairman Mao was once the most powerful and feared woman in the world. Now a political prisoner, she relives her life, replete with idealism and contradictions. Incorporating Revolutionary choreography, and underscored by a live musician, Madam Mao exposes the life of a woman who the Chinese are eager to forget and who North Americans never really knew. "Excellent performance...three versatile and expressive actors, fascinating story”— Margaret Atwood, Author “The Handmaid’s Tale” “Exciting dance pieces, skilled choreography, haunting score… Madam Mao is a performance that is rich with purpose and resonance that has the power to leave an audience stunned silent" —Mooney on Theatre (Toronto).
