There has been a seismic shift in global influence of all kinds including the arts toward China and all of Asia in over the last 15 years. The Peoples Republic of China has committed to the building of a new Broadway style theater district involving construction of some 25-30 new live theaters in Beijing. At the moment, there is little sustainable linkage between New York City’s public performing arts schools and programs and their counterparts in China and all of Asia. While the Chinese theater world has many world class private theater arts and performance development programs and private salons for their talented theater committed youth, they have not as yet developed the kinds of first rate academic and public performing arts schools and programs that the New York City Department of Education has been developing and making available for talented youth in this city over the last 30 years.
