Here's how the production is billed: "An exhilarating portrait of international icon Bruce Lee's journey from troubled Hong Kong youth to martial arts legend, Kung Fu blends dance, Chinese opera, martial arts and drama into a bold new theatrical form. This world premiere production follows Lee in America as he struggles to prove himself as a fighter, a husband, a father, and a man."
The creative team of Kung Fu includes Sonya Tayeh (choreography), David Zinn (scenic design), Anita Yavich (costume design), Ben Stanton (lighting design), Darron L West (sound design), Darrel Maloney (projection design), Du Yun (original music), Emmanuel Brown (fight direction), Jamie Guan (Chinese opera movement specialist), Deborah Hecht (vocal and dialect coach) and Joanna C. Lee and Ken Smith (cultural consultants). David H. Lurie is the production stage manager, and casting is by Telsey + Company.
