How China Does NYC Theatre: ‘Pearl: The Musical’ Is Now ‘Pearl’, a musical dance production

August 12, 2015, While many important distinctions as to the involvement of Pearl S Buck in the transiting of Canada Scoops Victims to USA are being discussed, understood and, in theory, largely agreed to, it’s also been brought to my attention that the biographical production of ‘Pearl’ scheduled to premiere at Lincoln Center at end of August 2015 is no longer Pearl: The Musical because it’s now ‘Pearl’ a musical dance production.  it’s also been referred to in recent summertime press releases as ‘Pearl, a multicultural dance play’.

Of course, we appreciate the distinction because the original title as it was published in BroadwayWorld.com, i.e., “Pearl: the Musical’, immediately brought forth the same sort of irony of the title that broadway show ‘Springtime for Hitler’ did, but as for the difference between a musical versus a musical dance production and a multicultural dance play, in NYC, there isn’t any; And, there really isn’t any when the central subject of the conversation is trafficking of children.
