"This play is constructed from the rich rudiments of dramatic art — dreams, mime, burlesque, magic. The overall effect is dazzling."- Time Magazine

A visually stunning pageant which recounts the beloved Chinese fable of Tripitaka, a monk who travels from China to India search of spiritual enlightenment and Buddhist scriptures, Journey to the West is like The Odyssey, The Canterbury Tales, and The Wizard of Oz rolled into one.
