Dragon Lady - The Many Lives & Deaths of Anna May Wong

23 - 24 June 2021 His Majesty's Theatre Buy tickets

Presented by Perth International Cabaret Festival 

Anna May Wong: From immigrant's daughter to Hollywood's first Chinese movie star to international style icon, Anna May Wong's career spanned silent film, talkies, Broadway, cabaret and television before she was thwarted by alcoholism and an industry unwilling to see past her Asian face.

In this WA premiere, Fiona Choi (The Family Law, The Letdown, Golden Shield) captivates as Anna May in an intimate performance as she travels through Anna May's past and tackles her demons.

With its scandalous reminiscences and sparkling musical numbers, Dragon Lady provokes questions about the heavy price of female ambition, and highlights struggles of cultural identity still painfully relevant today.

★★★★★ The acting is transformational and the singing is emotionally fulfilling…" GLAM, Adelaide

"It was a revelation to me to see what an exquisite, all-around performer she [Choi] is… such a delight to observe and enjoy Fiona's vocal skills, timing, and phrasing." Global Media Post
