July 30th: Shanghai Foxtrot at LPR

Tags

, , , , , , ,

Shanghai Foxtrot extols the romance and tragic decadence of Old Shanghai with classic Chinese songs from the 1920s, 30s, 40s, and 50s. Shanghai in the 1930s was known as both the “Paris of the East” and the “Whore of Asia” for its cosmopolitan and decadent qualities. This show delivers a taste of the glamor and extravagance of the time, featuring live performances by tango star Anton Gazenbeek, burlesque sensation Calamity Chang, and the beautiful Maggie Moon.

Live music performances by the Shanghai Foxtrot band will be a combination of popular Western and Chinese jazz, featuring songstress Shien Lee.
