The Remarkable Journey of Prince Jen is a blending of American musical comedy and traditional Chinese opera. Using Chinese theatrical techniques such as shadow puppets, mime, and acrobatics, and singing a Broadway-style score with Chinese influences, the actors take the audience on a journey over mountains, through dark forests, raging rivers, and deadly storms, to the time of great kings and ancient magic. The story follows Prince Jen as he endeavors to find the mythical kingdom of T'ien-kuo, where he hopes to learn the skills that will make him a great king.

The show had performances in mid-2003 as part of the Midtown International Theatre Festival. Check out the complimentary reviews from the Off-Off-Broadway Review and Broadway World.
