This year 2014, marks the 91st season for the Houston Miller Outdoor Theater. A new Broadway style bilingual musical based on a Chinese folk hero will be on the Miller stage this fall, Sat., Sept. 20 and Sun., Sept. 21, 2014. Performances begin at 8 PM on both dates.

The innovative bilingual (English and Mandarin-Chinese) production "Kung Fu Hero" was selected by the Miller Outdoor Theater Advisory Board.

Following the success of The Legend of Yin and Yang, author, Burton Wolfe has newly created "Kung Fu Hero." The musical plot is based on famous Chinese legendary hero, Fong Sai Yuk, who has been depicted in several films by martial arts celebrity, Jet Li.

The production contains a love theme, meaningful bilingual songs, colorful costumes and Asian fusion choreographed dance numbers. Of course plenty of Kung Fu fighting will take place on stage, along with the actors speaking revered Shaolin Martial Arts philosophy.
