"Faithful to the original story, but in the form of a Broadway musical, the show is interwoven with dialogue, narrative, dance, and songs...Smooth and compact. Interspersed with humorous dialogues, lyrical singing and lighthearted lines, it captured the audience’s attention from the beginning until the end...With his affectionate singing, Pang fully delivered Chang’s passion for romance...All characters were vividly portrayed."
