Program Notes

In this swinging musical drama set during the Korean War, the soldiers at a POW camp plan a tap show to distract both themselves and the prisoners from the hardships of war. Led by a former Broadway dancer and a rebellious North Korean soldier, the band of prisoners find a new sense of freedom in dancing.

Critics' Praise

“Fancifully snappy dance numbers vie with grisly bullet ballet for top set piece honors: Kang stages both with aplomb, leaving audiences caught between crying and cheering.”
— Guy Lodge, Variety

“Tells an engaging, enjoyable story, peppered with impressive dance numbers.”
— Noel Murray, Los Angeles Times
