April 17Dr. Heidi Kim (English & Comp. Lit.) discussing The Dark Side of Flower Drum Song. Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Flower Drum Song was a popular (though not critical) hit and started some of its Asian American stars on the road to lasting fame. However, its very contradictory story taps into a Cold War backdrop of paranoia about Communist infiltration and fraudulent immigration. Come hear Dr. Heidi Kim (UNC English & Comp Lit.) discuss the political context and difficult revision process of this musical.

May 15 – TBA

Bring your friends, grab your favorite beverage, and join us for a fascinating discussion. Complimentary snacks will be provided by the UNC Institute for Arts & Humanities.

Free & open to the public. All are welcome.
