Description: Got Mommy Issues? Join us on a musical journey with Lily, a first generation Chinese immigrant, and her daughter Mei as they endure the trials and tribulations of old school parenting in a new country. Like many Chinese, Mei and her mom Lily consider the piano the gateway to success, pushing their children to the limit, striving for perfection at every opportunity. But at Mei's daughter Kim's piano recital, Mei clashes with Lily over how much is too much parenting. Mei must decide for herself what is the perfect balance of mixing the old with the new and still meet her mother's approval. East meets west in this funny, irreverent and moving story about a mother, a daughter, a piano, and tough love, Asian style. With classical piano music and contemporary musical theater songs. Book and lyrics by Angela Chan and Michael Manley, music by Angela Chan, directed by Lysander Abadia, designed by Angela Chan. New York premiere.
