About Joseph Papp Free Performance: The Chinese Lady

Continuing our partnership with The Public to make theater more accessible to everyone, we’re thrilled to announce TodayTix is the exclusive mobile Lottery provider for free tickets to the Joseph Papp Free Performance of THE CHINESE LADY on February 23.

Inspired by the true story of the first Chinese woman to step foot in America, Lloyd Suh’s critically-acclaimed play, THE CHINESE LADY, is a tale of dark poetic whimsy and a unique portrait of the United States as seen through the eyes of a young Chinese girl. In 1834, 16-year-old Afong Moy sailed into New York Harbor and was immediately put on display for a paying public who were mesmerized by her exotic ways and horrified by her tiny bound feet. As audiences follow Moy’s travels through America as a living exhibit for decades, THE CHINESE LADY shares her impressions of a young country struggling with how to define itself.
