Rodgers and Hammerstein’s FLOWER DRUM SONG is a special breed of musical: one that was both revolutionary and problematic at the same time. So what does one do with a piece of history like that? Answer: hire David Henry Hwang. Today we welcome Daniel May, Broadway cast member from the 2002 revival, to discuss this beautiful show that too few have seen. Along the way, we share a touching tribute to Broadway legend Alvin Ing, featuring castmates Jose Llana, Sally Hong, J Elaine Marcos, and Telly Leung.
