A Precious Gem Arrives at Lincoln Center: PEARL

What are you doing August 27–30? Well, whatever you’ve got going on, you’ll need to clear your calendar for at least one of those evenings because we’ve got something you can’t miss. PEARL, a multi-cultural dance play based on the life of Pearl S. Buck, is having its world premiere at Lincoln Center and it is out of this world.

This exciting and evocative work quite literally has moves you’ve never seen. Featuring 30 dancers from the U.S. and China—including some So You Think You Can Dance alums, choreography by Daniel Ezralow (who the Chicago Tribune called “One of the best American dancer-choreographers now working on an international scale”), and an original score, this is an evening at Lincoln Center you won’t soon forget.

So, why Pearl S. Buck? The influential writer was the first woman to win both the Nobel and Pulitzer Prize, she gave America one of the first looks into Chinese culture, and lived a remarkable life. I think the real question is: why aren’t there more shows about Pearl S. Buck?

Have we mentioned it is only running for four performances? Seriously, get your tickets and dance your way over to Lincoln Center to see PEARL: for tickets and more information, visit PearlTheShow.com.
