The Chinese Lady

The Chinese Lady is a darkly poetic yet whimsical story about Afong Moy — supposedly the first Chinese woman to step foot on U.S. soil in 1834.

Afong Moy is 14 years old when she’s brought to the United States in 1834 and placed on public display as “The Chinese Lady” — supposedly the first to step foot on U.S. soil. Decade after decade, she performs as a living exhibit, showing curious white people how she eats, what she wears and — the highlight of the event — how she walks with bound feet. Time wears on, and eventually the lines between her performance and her own identity become blurry. Inspired by the true story of Afong Moy’s life, The Chinese Lady is a darkly poetic yet whimsical portrait of our collective past through the eyes of a young Chinese woman.

ADMISSION INFO

Prices for The Chinese Lady start at $35 depending on seat location and performance day, and they are subject to change. Special prices for children and teens start at $30.
