“Empress Dowager” Opens Tonight
Seem like an odd one for me to plug? Not really — it’s 19th century history after all. It’s about the Manchu Empress Cixi (1835-1908), who “ruled China from behind the throne”. The play is presented by the Yangtze Rep in Mandarin with English subtitles, and, well, it just sounds interesting so we’ll probably go see it.
