Lee, who had quietly watched the rehearsals, recalled that, at the Boston performances, Hammerstein would have a secretary mark on the script any sound of the chairs squeaking, as indicating that the audience was restless.

Hammerstein rewrote some of the book to expand the focus from Ta himself to the romantic relationships of the two couples. James Theatre on December 1, Lee sat in the audience on the first night; he later stated that he had been nervous and was "bowled over" by the positive audience reaction. Cast album sales were similar to previous Rodgers and Hammerstein hits. It was overshadowed that year by Redheadwhich though it received only slightly better reviews than Flower Drum Song and had a considerably shorter run, Flower Drum Song the Tony Awards in the musical categories.

With the summer approaching, generally a bad time for attendance, it was decided to close the show, and the last Broadway performance was given on May 7, In his autobiography, Rodgers wrote of the effect the success of Flower Drum Song had on his state of mind:.

The entire experience of working on Flower Drum Song was rewarding in many ways, not the least of which was that it convinced me that I had overcome all traces of my depression. My only thought was to keep on doing what I was doing, and I saw nothing in the future that could stop me. The show opened in London's Palace Theatre on March 24, and ran for performances.

Following the closure of the Broadway production, a U. By this time, Hammerstein was in his final illness he died in Augustand none of the three producers accompanied the show on the road. Lee and Fields, both present for the local premiere, were given ovations. It closed on October 14, in Cleveland, a month before the film of the musical opened. He comments that since the version of the musical was rarely revived, the film "would in future years come to stand for the stage musical it so crassly misrepresented" [47] and would serve as the version that academics and latter-day theatre critics would Flower Drum Song when they analyzed the musical.

The film was the only Hollywood adaptation of a Rodgers and Hammerstein musical to lose money. Louis Municipal Opera in and [51] and revivals in the San Francisco area in andboth times with Soo as Sammy Fong. The musical proved difficult to produce for amateur and school groups, however, because it requires a cast either Asian or made up as Asian.

Even professional companies found it difficult to round up an entire cast of Asian singer-dancer-actors. Flower Drum Song came to be seen by some as stereotypical and patronizing towards Asians, and that it was "inauthentic, even offensive in its relentlessly upbeat picture of a big-city Chinatown".

Many lines of dialogue were cut, and producer Fred Van Patten stated that "[w]hat we've done is cut things in the show that Asians said to make white people laugh. Lee's novel, in which Wang states that all foreigners look alike. The production, which had been scheduled for a three-week run, closed early. To Chinese Americans, the musical "represented political incorrectness incarnate.

But [Hwang] had a secret soft spot for the movie version. It's one that Lee announced that the rewrite had his approval. Hwang was given a free hand with dialogue; he was not allowed to change lyrics. This concept is reflected in the struggle for survival of Wang's Chinese opera company, as it competes with the more modern, Americanized night club run by Ta. The character of Madam Liang Flower Drum Song changed "from the wise-owl aunt" to a "savvy career woman" in show business.

In Septemberafter development through a series of workshops, the new Flower Drum Song was presented at two well-attended workshops for potential backers. The show failed to raise enough money for an immediate Broadway run, but Hwang hoped that an extended Los Angeles run would lead to raising additional funds. It finally closed on January 13, The success of the Los Angeles run sparked sufficient investment to move the show to Broadway.

During the runup to the Broadway opening, the show received mostly positive publicity. Opening night at the Virginia Theatre on October 17, was attended by veterans of the film and production. Though it received warm applause from the audience, the critics mostly panned it. The producers hoped the show could hold out long enough to get a boost from the Tony Awards [75] though nominated for three, including best book, it won none[76] but in February, they announced that the show would close on March 16,after performances.

The show's backers lost their entire investment. The production was directed and choreographed by Longbottom, with scenic design by Robin Wagnercostume design by Gregg Barnes and lighting design by Natasha Katz.

Subsequent productions have favored the Hwang script, although the older version remains available for license [80] and has received occasional revivals, including a staged concert as part of Ian Marshall Fisher's Lost Musicals series. A review in London's The Times compared this production with "the much grander production of Show Boat currently docked at the Albert Hall " and judged that " Flower Drum Song makes the more stimulating Flower Drum Song.

One night a week, Wang's son Ta turns the theater into a nightclub, starring the very assimilated Linda Low, a Chinese-American stripper from Seattle. Linda's constant companion is a gay costume designer, Harvard so named by his success-obsessed Chinese parents.

The nightclub is profitable; the Chinese opera is not. Linda is soon signed by talent agent Rita Liang, who pushes Wang to turn the theater into a club full-time "Grant Avenue"and he reluctantly opens Club Chop Suey. Ta slowly is becoming attracted to Mei-li, who now serves as a waitress, but he has competition from fortune cookie factory worker Chao, whom Mei-li met on the slow journey from China, and who is rapidly becoming discontented with America.

Wang is also unhappy, despite the club's success, and it is no consolation the crowd is having a good time — after all, in the old country, no crowd ever came to his theater expecting to enjoy themselves. Outraged at Harvard's poor acting skills, Wang takes the stage in his place, his stage instincts take over "Gliding Through My Memories"and he is soon an enthusiastic supporter of the change, taking the stage name Sammy Fong.

Linda advises Mei-li to put on one of her old stripper dresses to attract Ta, but the stratagem backfires, since Ta is attracted to Mei-li because of her wholesomeness.

Ta and Mei-li quarrel; she takes her flower drum and leaves Club Chop Suey. He finds her in a fortune cookie factory working alongside Chao. And the idea that the younger generation, at least, was portrayed as American [in the movie] was unusual.

So growing up, the musical represented one of the few positive portrayals of people that looked like me. And then, at another point in my life, it became something to be demonized.

David H. Lewis in called it "a bizarre pastiche of limping mediocracy". He comments that since the version of the musical was only rarely revived for decades after its initial run, the film "would in future years come to stand for the stage musical it so crassly misrepresented" [45] and would serve as the version that academics and latter-day theatre critics would judge when they analyzed the musical.

James Deaville countered that Koster and Hunter "wanted to make the musical more relevant and accessible Some Asian-Americans have found the film offensive in later years due to common stereotypes and what was seen as miscasting Japanese American actors Shigeta and Umeki in Chinese American roles. Universal Studios Home Entertainment in association with the estates of Rodgers and Hammerstein finally released a DVD version on November 7,with extra features on the making and casting of the movie.

It includes interviews with David Henry Hwang, Pat Suzuki, and Nancy Kwan, and pictures from the and Broadway rehearsals and practice sessions, as well as pictures of Rodgers, Hammerstein, and Fields.

He was simply thrilled to see faces like his on the big screen, to see Asian-Americans as the stars of the piece, and not as the sidekicks or villains. We were cooks, waiters and laundrymen. Later, while a budding playwright in college at Stanford University, his eyes were opened to how dated the show was, how stereotypical its portrait of Asian-Americans really was.

It could take a hundred million miracles to update what many consider a cultural relic.
