PEARLS OVER SHANGHAI is a comic mock-operetta about white slavery, opium dens, and miscegenation set in the colorful world of 1937 Shanghai. Link Martin places his story at the crossroads of good and evil, his exotic “old sin town” is filled with singing sailors, humorous whores, foolish immortals, handmaidens and henchmen, all taking their places in streets teeming with a mix of foreign aristocrats, opium addicts, and gangland slave-trade czars.

Stage Director for PEARLS OVER SHANGHAI is Thrillpeddlers’ Russell Blackwood, and original Cockette and composer Scrumbly Koldewyn serves as Musical Director and accompanist. With a cast of over 20, costumes a-plenty, and a score of 24 original songs, this production is the most eye-popping and toe-tapping in the Hypnodrome’s history, with the scent of intoxicating perfume, poisonous flowers, opium, and sex oozing from every scene.

Three original Cockettes: Scrumbly Koldewyn, "Sweet Pam” Tent, and Rumi Missabu who were in the original production of PEARLS OVER SHANGHAI will perform in this production, bringing to life the whimsy and the madness that were the "all singing, all dancing, all cardboard” Cockettes.
